I've caught pollack in April on the fly at Caerfai Bay (not exactly the bay but the point on the right),best fly was a 2 inch Clouser on a medium sinker.

definitely worth a go! my lure fishing mate has had bass, sea trout, pollack and garfish over the past few weeks on small lures. reckoned the fly might even have been better for the gars - they were close in and tended to 'bounce' off the lure.

Think you might have a bit of trouble with a brook rod mate you want a 9# atleast, its o.k casting small flies 20 foot in a pond with a small rod but when you get out on the sea and are casting big flies quite a way you need a rod and line with a bit of beef in it:unsure: Especially when you got an onshore wind!!
