Thumbs down West Wall Saturday

I spent about 6 hours on the west wall in RI on saturday with a couple of schoolies to show for my effort. I picked up the two bass before sunrise, the first hooked himself while I was stretching the line, and I hooked the second a couple minutes later.

There were plenty of small tailor sized blues around, but I didn't want to retie with wire, so I kept my fly out of the water when they came through.

I didn't see any bonito-looking activity, and none of the boats I could see cruising around seemed to be doing anything either. I saw 3 other flyfishermen on the jetty and one in a kayak, none of them did anything that I saw. There were plenty of scup fishermen around though, so parking was tight.

A question on parking there: The signs clearly say paralell parking only, but when I got there there were a few cars already parked diagonally, so I just went with that and didn't have any problems. Do they ever enforce the paralell only rules there?

Thanks to Quentin for the directions!
