Blind Casting for Albies

The albies are already showing in Cape and Vineyard waters.

There is a saying in golf, “Drive for show and putt for dough.” While catching false albacore from a frothing surface feed is one of the most exciting experiences a light tackle angler can have in the Northeast, a primary focus on “blind casting” will improve your score dramatically. The advantages of blind casting apply to both light-tackle and fly-rod fishing. Renowned fly-tyer Dave Skok, who has won the albie shore fly division of Martha’s Vineyard Derby more than anyone, estimates that he caught 70 percent of his albies while blind casting.
