False Albacore Showing up!
False albacore are showing up in my area. That’s great news. My buddy Phil was into them big time yesterday. And he said they were fair size as well. Glad he had his 10-weight to wrestle with those dudes. The bait was bay anchovies as is typical for this time of year.
What fly was he using? His Farnsworth silver slider, a fly he developed many, many years ago. Small, light-weight and easy to cast, they’re effective for striped bass, bluefish, bonito and false albacore, producing exciting surface strikes. You got to love that.
