Fished with Mike and Ryan on the bay. We headed out to catch the big blues on the fly and we did. Mike and Ryan both caught a bunch of monsters on the fly as well as on the spinning rod. The blues ranged from 10-19 pounds. Yep. I said 19 pounds. It was the biggest blue I've seen in a very long time. Pro Tip: If you are going to enjoy and become proficient as a fly angler, you need to learn to cast in the wind. Use the wind to your advantage. Learn to work with it and not to fight it. Anglers who say it's too windy to fly fish will miss some amazing days on the water.
