Hunting the Flats
Mark Sampson has written a good look at fly fishing the flats around Key West, Florida. The article from DelmarvaNow.com chronicles the first day of fishing on his recent Key West vacation.
"By the way, our first day of fishing was good in that we explored a flat we've never fished before, caught a fair number of nice-sized barracuda (Charlotte caught the most, but I caught the biggest), we saw a bunch of sharks and other marine life, worked a lot of kinks out of our fishing routine that's gotten a little rusty over the winter, and only broke one $400 fly rod (ouch!)."
