Has anybody here fished in the surf with a fly rod or conventional gear? I'm interested in getting into this method of fishing the salt and would like to know your tips and tricks. I'd like to know what flies/bait/lure set ups you use as well as some good spots to go around Newport/Lincoln City. I don't expect anyone to tell me their secret spot or anything, I just don't want to find myself fishing in front of a hotel watching kites fly over my head.
Thanks in advance.
