    I can't wait to take out my new stick!!!!!!!!!

    I have jetty jocked since 97, and i have never really had a true saltwater flyrod.I used a Gloomis GL4 9' 9wt which is my Salmon / Steelhead rod because thats all i had.I also have three Billy Pate Bonefish Anti Reverse reels, each has different line on it{ i used to fish out of a boat w a guide @ Cape Cod} a floater for using gurglers and poppers, a Teeny 350 saltwater line, and a Monic slime line intermediate.
    Well I got a GLoomis GLX 9' 10wt 4pc . I hope this solves the damn wind dilema.
    What do you guys use?

    Hey Rick...I gotta Sage DS2 9' 10wt, nothing fancy but gets the job done... Just use the SA Intermediate "striper" line...

    Let me know if you're heading out to the salt and need someone to help with the gas...

    Re: I can't wait to take out my new stick!!!!!!!!!

    Phil, im not sure how the jetties do right now during summer, my slatwater up in new england used to be the first three weeks of june, no i didnt fish all three weeks, just that i used those to keep open for scheduling vacation.I have to find out how or what i need to do for stuff in my 4runner for Island Beach Permit. I would like to do the hook, i have yet to fish there.
    If i take you you can meet me half way with the day permit and parkway/turnpike fees, gas either way im payin for it to go fish be it with you or by myself.Ill get the gas. Maybe get some Wegmans hoagies an water go halfs.
    i usually do Jersey in the Fall.

    Re: I can't wait to take out my new stick!!!!!!!!!

    Hey Rick...yea man I'm down. I'm good to split the permit, tolls, and gas...especially if it saves the hike to the North Jetty on IBSP (that sucks with corkers on).
    I've been wanting to try the spring action but only have made it out there in the fall...
    Also down for the hook...only went there once and got the skunk...

    I found that changing from a floating to an intermediate line it helped tremendously with wind problems. I just got the g loomis NRX 9' 9wt and love it. Rio outbound helps too.

    Re: I can't wait to take out my new stick!!!!!!!!!

    Old thread, but I never use a floating line for the salt here in NJ, even if I'm using poppers. I would say that 90% of my line used is an intermediate sink head with fast and super fast sink shooting heads taking up the remaining 10% of my use. I like a two-hand rod for the salt because I can cast nearly twice as far as a one-hander.

    Re: I can't wait to take out my new stick!!!!!!!!!

    Rusty,
    Only place I use a floater in Saltwater is up on Cape Cod, Locally in Jersey I use a Teeny 350 Saltwater, or an Airflo Depth Charge 400 ,and a Monic Slimeline Intermediate. I recently aquired a Scott G 14' 9wt Spey rod, I also bought a Rio GrandSpey 8/9 long belly floater for Salmon/Steelhead .I prefer a long belly for freshwater....looks like i will need to get a multi tip system for Salt if i am going to use a Spey rod.

    Re: I can't wait to take out my new stick!!!!!!!!!

    I prefer a at least a 10 ft rod in the saltwater. That SA striper line sucks a fat one btw. Airflow is where its at for salt and floating line does not make sense in saltwater unless you are using something tiny that you want near the top but who fishes tiny flies in salt makes no sense.

    Re: I can't wait to take out my new stick!!!!!!!!!

    I've been using an older Sage RPLXi 10wt but have been thinking about selling it and getting an Xi3. Also have been seriously considering going the two handed route for the surf and have been looking at the Beulah Beach rods to save wear and tear on the shoulder.
    For lines right now I have the Rio Striper intermediate line which seems to coil up more than it should in anything less than warm weather. It's pissing me off but I hate to replace it because I feel like I'm throwing 80 bucks out the window. I also have an Orvis Depth Charge 350 grain sinking line which I need to spool up because the fish right now seem to like the fly fished deeper and a little slower.
