One last piece of advice for the new saltwater angler: Keep a diary. Put down information like where you fished, which flies worked, what bait you saw in the water, water temperature (if possible), wind conditions, sunny vs. cloudy, water clarity and what stage of the tide you fished. This information will become invaluable to you and fellow anglers you wish to share information with. Fish are generally creatures of habit and will show up year after year at the same places (providing the food is there). A diary will become your biggest aid to angling success.
