“What other game fish can you catch that is longer than your fly rod? Fisheries scientists tell us that the sailfish is very likely the fastest fish in the ocean, and from personal experience I tend to agree. The entire process of catching a sail on a fly — which starts with the sail attacking the teaser and ends when you finally release the fish — is exciting to the extreme. And for those of you who have yet to try it, this is how it works.” Bob Stearns offers some good advice on getting started in fly fishing for sailfish and marlin.
