I'm in topsail for a few days, and have never done any saltwater fly fishing, so I was wondering where and what I can catch? All I have is my 5wt rod with 6wt floating line. Any and all suggestions are welcome!
A quick comment: Your gear is a bit on the light side. Most the fish you will catch will be small but casting with wind and heavy leader/flies will be hard. Also most reels that small are not made to handle salt or big fish.
That said you can fly fish the surf if your a good at reading the sand. Your best bet is the intercostal though you'll need to sit on something that floats to get to the good spots.
Do some searching in the forum and you might get some more specific info, sorry for the cop out but I'm posting via a phone.
