About the fish we chase: Saltwater
Popular Saltwater Gamefish...
Knowledge about the saltwater fish you chase is no less important than knowing about the freshwater fish...knowing their preferred diet, feeding habits, how tides affect their movements are all important in order to maximize your chances of success...
Stripers - or striped bass are a very popular gamefish for both fresh and salt water. In saltwater, stripers are found on both coasts. They are native to the Atlantic from the St. Lawrence River in Canada to Louisiana. Stripers have been introduced to the West Coast of the US and into many freshwater lakes and reservoirs.

Snook - snook are common throughout the tropical waters of the western Atlantic Ocean from the coast of the North Carolina to Brazil including the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea. Snook are a favorite of fly fishers as they are pretty aggressive and will readily ear a well presented fly.

Roosterfish - are found from the Sea of Cortez in Mexico to Peru. They like the shallow water; beaches, cliffs, rocks and bays. They range from palm size to over 100-pounds. They are fast, strong, ruthless and brawley, and they will eat flies. From my limited experience with Roosterfish, they are one of the strongest (pound for pound) saltwater fish.
Mahi-mahi, dorado, dolphin (the fish...not Flipper) - are a highly sought after saltwater gamefish. Because mahi-mahi are more of an open water fish and less a coastal fish, there is not as much hype as say a tarpon or redfish. My very first open water fish on a fly was a mahi-mahi. They are extremely acrobatic, will readily take a fly and, to my taste, the best eating fish in the ocean.
