RE:Prospecting for new spots (Nahant)
The guy to talk to would be Ted Lewis. He used to run the flyfishing dept. at Bob Smiths/Wilderness house in Boston, and now he is somewhere on the North Shore at a different shop. He lives, or lived, in Nahant and used to show me some incredible pictures of the bass fishing he did there. He has a page in the new bob Ververka book, and I suspect the picture of him with that big bass is from Nahant.
Don't know where you usually fish, but if it's the Cape and you're not used to cliff fishing, it is HIGHLY reccomended (I don't want to presume you haven't but that was how I read your post). i'll see if I can find out where Ted hides out these days.
