the corbina diaries…

Hey gang, I am very excited to announce this long-awaited book on sight fishing the beaches for corbina that I have threaten to write for over ten years is finally complete and on it’s way. The books should arrive here in the states sometime next month. We will start a PRESALE next week, right here on this website with some fun perks for purchasing an early copy. I didn’t do a large print run so try to get your first edition book early. I will sign all copies purchased from my website. There’s be a buzz about this project and the fly shops have already begun to order them. There will also be a SPECIAL EDITION set available only here and nowhere else that has fun perks and will be limited in quantities as well, so please stay tuned…

maybe time to change tactics?

As we get deeper into the Corbina season we notice the fish are gorging themselves on sand crabs and they start to get picky. If you are fortunate to fish during the low tides during the late morning or early afternoon when the sun is higher and visibility at its optimum you will notice that the fish get really spooky. You can see them and they can see you! LOL This is the time to switch to a clear intermediate (Aqualux II, pictured below) or slow sink line (Type 3) mainly for low impact and stealth. When the fish get super spooky and are feeding right at the edges of the waves, you need to stay far back and drop down your gear to as light as you can throw for soft landings. This is the time to increase your leader length, and slow your heart rate! LOL
