09.30.12 Flat day and night...with albies at light and shad at night

      Flat at first light, flat at night. Best part, well two best parts, beautiful morning, and seeing albies busting in a flash about 600 feet off the groin we were standing on. Another fly angler had a short in the wash...and that was it. Off in the distance we watched as birds hovered and dolphins worked bait.
Night brought more of the same, but tonight hickory shad had bait pinned in tight to the rocks. A quick switch to a Jiggy and the "Poor mans tarpon" were on. I just waited for a big swirl or blow up that never came and got home just in time for the start of the fourth quarter of the Giants-Eagles game.
