An autumn guide to fly fishing for trophy bluefish.
Scientific name: Pomatomus saltatrixPhysical description: Younger fish are green on back, larger ones deeper blue with silvery sides and white belly. They have short, stiff spines on the front dorsal fin, a long, soft rear dorsal opposite a similar anal fin and a forked tail. Highly predatory, with sharp teeth and powerful jaws, blues often travel in large schools. They range in size from "snappers" of a foot or less in length to "tailors" (2 or 3 pounds), "choppers" roughly to about 8 pounds and the largest fish, often called "slammers," 10 pounds and up.
