    Fishing the bubble float and fly in estuary's

    Hey Does anyone on here fish with the bubble float and fly in estuarys? I.e bubble float at the end of your line, then 2 - 3 flies on droppers. I fish the fly but I think it would be nice for the girl friend to try it before she moves onto the fly rod. Just a thought. cheers
