Bonefish Bob is an institution down there, he very knowledgeable and will help you out. His shop is kinda pricy, tie your own flies his are real expensive. The last time I was in there he wanted $9 for a Merkin!
$9 for a merkin?!?!?!? Wow! I just tied my first one last night. Not exactly a difficult pattern. Any specific suggestions for flies for me to tie/try?
I realize that this may not be the best way (do-it-yourself) to plan my first salt trip, but I'm fine with exploring, trying things out, and doing the best I can even if I don't have much success. I might try and get the dough together to take a guide trip, and I'm pretty much set on fishing with Bruce Chard if I decide to do it and he's available. He's a friend of a friend, and has given me some good info so far.
I want to thank everyone for their advice on this topic. It's been of great assistance to me, and I really appreciate it...
