How much of your fishing is sightcasting?
However, I have found that I am maybe not very good at sightfishing and I end up blind casting more than not, and spin gear excels here because you can cover more water and make more noise usually.
I want to catch more on fly, but is that realistic without being able to sight cast all the time? I fish off a kayak and I can stand, but it still doesn't put me as high as a casting platform on a boat. I want to also blame the stained water around the mangroves, but there are plenty of fish caught in say, Everglades backwaters which are just as tannic as around here.
What do you think? How did you get better at sightfishing? We gotta start discussions and give this forum a jumpstart.
