The pilgrimage head on into the sand continued and I had a beach to myself and proceeded to catch four short ones with stripes on a Lefties Deceiver pattern. If I could keep the wind and waves from lifting the sinking fly line and taking it south I could hook up. Several spin fishers on the way out thought that the guy with the "fairy wand" was crazy and just snagged until they saw what was really happening. A lot of work, but good a time was had.
A quick story
I was plugging one day, just me and a fly fisherman out there, I wasn?t getting a tap on the plugs, he was banging the bass on the fly every Cast and I was next to him
I switched the twisted dropper around and put a weight in front on the dropper and trailed a small teaser 3 feet behind ripping it along the bottom, game on.
Tiny bait in the wash, they were keyed in on that. Don?t EVER underestimate the lip at your feet.and matching the hatch.
