I originally asked my question in the fly fishing section. I completely forgot the salt had its own section. Anyways, I know most of the Saltwater guys are in Florida but that is too far away LOL. I'm just curious if any one has fished the bays and beaches in Southern California and if anyone has any knowledge on locations and flies they are willing to share with me? Thanks!

Adam, yeah I have searched Dan Blanton and checked out his site, lots of info, but hard to navigate. It looks like orange Clousers are the go to. Just wondering if anybody has any personal experiences out west, you know?
