May Backside Beach Clinic - May 11

Don't forget that Capt. Todd Murphy has offered to take us out on the big beaches to practice the art of floating line flyfishing in the ocean surf. Depending on the number of people, I may have to volunteer my truck as an oversand transport as well. The date is May 11, Cape backside beaches.

Space is limited so respond early. More details to follow.

Juro...... How is this for an early reply...please count me in... I just will have to find a floating line. Jimmy just e-mailed me the other day about this. Don't forget to ask Todd about fishing the from the beach "all-nighter" later in the season.

Count me in. If I can't get a floating line by then I have a intermidate that should work.

The rules are floating line for this one according to the Capt. I have a spare 8wt on a Lamson LP4 if anyone needs it for the day.

I can lend someone a floating line if need be. Have no idea if I can attend, though.

Backside beaches and floating lines. The more I think about this, the crazier it sounds. Seems to be against everything I have learned about big surf fishing. I am really intrigued by this. I hope my 8wt has enough punch to get the job done out there. Otherwise I may need to get a 9 wt floater.

Like I just said, you can borrow one if you need to.

I really regret that I can't attend. I'll be visiting my family in Maine that weekend for Mother's Day, but rest assured that I'll be chasing schoolies in the rivers with my precious free time.

I'm very intrigued by this fishing that Todd has proposed....please let those of us who can't make it know how you did, with pictures if possible. Best of luck to you all!
