Brackish water snook on fly

Snook chewing baitfish patterns well in local upriver spots. Lots of shorts but a few photo worthy fish too.

    spydermonkey,

    Indeed, that is the way to go. The fish come up SO FAR into the soup you can spot them almost on the sand. I see lots of guys walking too close to the water and making long hauls way out into the surf but it's amazing how many fish are right up on the beach. First light or last light - great summer time sight fishing!

    Found them on the beach last weekend.

    Generally, if your feet get wet while casting then you are fishing too deep.
