      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

Beginner Fly Fisherman Needs Help

4 posts in this topic

I got my equipment - 9' rod, 9# line and some flies - but I really need some help getting started. Anyone interested in providing some instruction please let me know. Where to go, when to go, and a lot of how-to.

I'm a quick learner, so I shouldn't be too frustrating. Email me and let me know where and when to meet you and I will bring the food and drink.

Thanks.

Right now is a good time to get out and fly fish around Plum Island and Joppa flats. There are a lot of small fish very close to shore right now. What kind of line do you have floating or sinking?

I got a WF-9F line. I plan on putting everything together this week (backing, line, etc.) and practicing some casts somewhere before I get out a fish for real.
