I've been talking with a lot of people lately about escaping from this protracted winter. I'm looking out the shop window right now and seeing the snow fly by horizontally, and it feels more like mid-January than March 18th. No wonder we all want to get the heck outta here! As I look forward to our upcoming hosted trip to Belize in May, many of my conversations in the shop have been with anglers headed out on sunny family vacations and first time saltwater fishing trips.
For those of you who are new to saltwater angling, Orvis's Tom Rosenbauer explains the essentials in this video including:
- Inshore saltwater habitat and species
- Saltwater fly fishing equipment
- Fishing on your own and with a guide
- Casting and fly placement, including a section on double-hauling with Orvis casting instructor Pete Kutzer
So turn up the furnace, grab a margarita and escape for 22 minutes as you learn about saltwater angling!
