I started fishing in fresh water, and similarly started fly fishing in freshwater. However, it did not take long for salt water to call my name. The CT shoreline is a fisherman's paradise, with ample opportunity for phenomenal fly fishing. Unfortunately I don't get to spend that much time on the Sound, but the time that I have spent has been enlightening and productive.
Most of my success has been in river mouthes, catching snapper blues and the occasional striped bass. I have also taken to the water on kayak, and that has lead to encounters with a strange fish that is typically shunned by other anglers: the sea robin. This year one of my goals is to catch one of these on a fly. Also, during the spring herring run, stripers come up into the freshwater and this time I will be waiting for them with big blue and white flies.
But for now I'll just have to remember the trips from the past two years.
