Fly Fishing the Beach

Had Tom Sency out from NJ first light to try to beat the west wind. We fished one of the barrier isalnds near Naples and Marco Island. I anchored the flats skiff and we walked the beach. There were many schools of snook and caught and released 12 up to 28". Good sight fishing and a good way to catch snook on the fly for a beginner as you only need to throw about 30ft in the trough.
