Surfperch Flyfishing Technique

Tony Garber shows off a nice striped surfperch taken on fly tackle. While fishing off the South Jetty in Winchester Bay, he would drop down to near the water’s edge on a dropping swell, cast parallel to the jetty, make several quick strips and then scramble to safety before the incoming swell drenched him. The technique is hard work, but does allow an angler to actually flyfish in tough conditions.
