needs,

You will do best fishing nymphs. Not much different than fishing bucktails in the current! Although when the time is right nothing is more fun than fishing dry flies on the surface. Kind of like getting bass on a top water plug!!!

Pins,

Same for you except reversed. Swinging a fly in the salt is not much different than swinging nymphs or streamers in the river! The only thing different is in the stream you can add split shot to get your fly down in the salt I use an intermediate line!

Stay away from the lower Toms River. Very over grown and hard for a beginner to fish. The Upper section in Jackson is ok for Fly rodding.
