Last time i fly fished on the Indian River was a while ago, and I was pursuing mostly sea trout at the time. I was basically chucking size 1/0 mickey finns around the bridge pilons and did rather well. Also used a lot of poppers and sliders(again yellow, or yellow/white) and the trout we are over them. SOmething you may want to check out also is casting huge streamers off the break wall at Sebastion Inlet. Last Dec i was down there and hooked into some nice stripers and a bunch of schoolie blues, and caught a ton of pompano(i am catch and release but man pompano sure is one tasty fish!!). Pompano were mostly taken one shrimp patterns and small streamers right in the breakers. Warning though, if you're fishing Sebastion Inlet watch out for the rip tides and undertow currents there, I have seen many a people washed out beyond the breakers there. Also, if you like clams, you can find a ton of them in the Indian River right beside the inlet, and around Coco and Vero Beach there is small reefs that are visible during low tides that contain all kinds of spot, sheepheads, stripers, etc. Hope you have a great trip
