Fighting the morning first bass

Set aside what you think you know about fly fishing. It doesn't always happen on mountain streams. There's plenty of saltwater fly fishing going on around the Cape, with anglers picking up bluefish and striped bass. 

Kevin Blinkoff, of On The Water magazine, gives us a primer on saltwater fly fishing: how to get started, and how not to be intimidated by that graceful casting manuever. Plus, we've got a round-up of the week's fishing action, with suggestions for the weekend.  Give it a listen.
