A note from Tim Regan:
“Patience! When I’m blind casting, I always use the rod to make my fly twitch towards the end of a retrieve. A good percentage of the fish I catch come from doing this, especially fluke in the surf.
The striped bass here sprinted towards my Holy Moley fly after the first twitch, then ate it right after the second twitch. Hope you can see all that from this high vantage. Look closely and you’ll see a very large fish cruising slowly at the bottom of the frame.”
