you sure can, you really have to know how to fish beaches to start and just apply that to FF. Finding structure, bait movement, tide, wind. The casts will not be as long but, allot of times , their at your feet and with in FF range.
That's how I got my interest in fly rodding. Mid summer, low tide, small pool inside a bar and this guy was fly fishing and killing small blues. It was almost as fun to watch. Shortly after I added a fly rod to my tools.
Learn the basics and the fly rod will be just another tool. Go to our home page and read all the info you can.

So im guessing just the more you do it the more youll learn and the more you learn the better you get, and that results in more hook ups with fish?

Will most sandbars and structure hold fish? and do fish really feed very close to shore?

Ocean beach fishing is very much like fishing a lake for largemouth bass. Just don't get overwhelmed by the size of the body of water.
Stripers are going to look for current, if you can find an area that has current and some change in structure-
  • depth
  • bottom-rock to sand
  • sandbar
Then chances are there will be fish around. There are some great articles on the web about reading beach structure, and more importantly reading the wave action to tell you what's underneath.
Get out to a beach you want to fish at low tide and look for trenches, holes, structure and then key on those areas when you go back, the tide will depend on the area, a low tide might introduce a rip current in one area but not in another.
