Just curious what you guys prefer to fish with flyfishing the harbor. I brought out my 8wt size 3 reel setup (Echo 3S/Lamson Konic II) loaded with Rio Outbound Short Type 6 intermediate w/ a 4-5' 10lb straight mono and fishing a small red/white clouser minnow. It was nice getting casting practice but I couldn't get a good feel for how fast the fly was actually getting down there or even how to fish it. I figured the best would be to let it sink to the bottom and retrieve but I couldn't even tell when I hit bottom or where the fly really was.
How do you guys typically fly fish the harbors and on what kind of setup, strip/retrieve, etc?
