      Surfcaster's 2016 Reboot!   09/21/2016

      Howdy, folks. I know this is way overdue, and the damage is probably already done, but after weeks of working with the database I've finally wiped out all of the spam posts and topics. This was no easy task, considering there were three-quarters of a million bogus posts and nearly three hundred thousand bogus topics. Once a hacker/spammer network finds a vulnerability, they send out automated programs that basically destroy a database like this. Over the past couple weeks I've migrated all of the good data into a more current, secure platform with the hopes that we can somehow rebuild. New member registration is tightened way up, and a third-party spam monitoring service is in place. I've also invested in an awesome new gallery extension,  allowing members to create, manage, and share image galleries. Please give it a try, and let me know if there are any issues. I'm still testing and working out the bugs. Surfcaster's forums were once an amazing resource for everyone to enjoy, and we're hoping it can once again build back up. The main site (non-forums) is pretty banged up, but once the forums are complete my next task is to re-invent that as well. Spread the word. Hope to see a lot of you back! Cheers, Andrew

  2. Where do you live? There are lots of places to go. If you have waders it allows you to go more places, and cast better as it gets you out in the open and away from any vegetation and sand/dirt. For blues almost anything works when they are feeding (big and shiny) but you'll need a wire leader. Chartruese/white clousers are good to begin with for stripers so start with those. Stripping them in, in 6" short bursts. http://www.stripersurf.com/flyguy/index.html There is a list of good flies to try with pictures. When I flyfish I usually do it in the flats areas, fishing the outgoing. PI has flats, also try estuaries, and the Cape has great areas for flyfishing. Best way to learn how to flyfish is to go flyfishing and try different things. You'll also run into other flyfisherman who will give you advice and show you flies he has tried. Even if you don't catch anything you'll probably learn something.
