Maybe you're looking for a saltwater destination now, or maybe it's on your bucket list, but if you've never been saltwater fly fishing it's an exhilarating and memorable experience worth considering. Check out these excellent articles shared by our friends at the Orvis Fly Fishing Learning Center. The first, written by Tom Rosenbauer, talks about preparing for your first bonefishing trip and gives a great overview of what to items to take. The second, by Truel Myers, covers equipment as well as what to expect while on the flats. Read this before you go bonefishing!
