So I've talked with Geoff Malloway of Central Coast Fly Fishing, and will finally meet him tomorrow to set up my 9' 8wt. fly rod for fishing the surf.
We're going to try the Carmel Beach tomorrow to see what we can see. Richard Gilliam's been doing well lately, so it'll be fun to try a new beach.
I finally get to meet Geoff and patronize his store!
Pastor's been a great help as well. Today, he lent me his stripping basket with Hilltop's design. I'll try it out to see if the 18 qt. is too large, or if I can get away with fishing with the 12 qt.
Time will tell!
Stripers and perch or bust!!!
