Newbie Questions...

I know I know, more darn newbie questions!

Allright, I know my way around trout streams. I know my way alot better around steelhead and salmon streams of the Northwest.

However, I am seeming to find some sort of interest in this salt water, blue water, hot fish that destroy 8 or 9 wt rods, white sand beaches, palm trees, and drinks with little umbrellas in them...

The only beach I have ever been to was in hawaii (Army training exersize.....hehehehe)

I know bonefish are revered to saltwater anglers like steelhead to freshwater guys, but what is the run of the mill trout of the salt water fly fishing arena?

I think it might be cool to try it sometime, in some tropical place. I have no desire to attempt to battle ANY fish that has 3 digits or more in its weight. Smaller tuna? I have seen on tv's people that catch, I think dolphins....really pretty fish with a funny dome head? (I told ya I didnt know a damn thing about saltwater). Just curious on what you all think. Thanks.

Scroll down to the bonefish, tarpon heading if you want drinks with little umbrellas. Andros Island in the Bahamas is a goodd place to start.
