If they fish are spooky, lay the fly on the bottom well ahead of their approach and don't move it until they are on top of it

Bring your shrimpy pink steelhead flies - when the fish are tailing in shallow water the softer something lands and the slower it sinks the better

You will sink less standing on the tops of the mounds at airport flat than you will in the hollows between them

Look like a tourist instead of an angler when you get off the water unless you want to be hassled by the guides there. It's hard to listen to their cries of hardship from DIY when the gold jewelry they have on exceeds my net worth.

Keep an eye out for buried stingrays, try to move the feet parallel to the bottom and wear good solid wading shoes.

Bring lots of water and protect from that blistering sun.
