Fly fishing from the beach

I was wondering what the fly fishing would be like fishing from the beachs of Contadora Isle. Will be on Contadora in the middle of April. What fish can be caught from the beaches and what flies would interest the fish? Is there any special line requirements (ie. floating or full sink lines)? Any special leaders or tippets? What are the licensing requirements and what are the rates? I am also considering a day of Deep Sea fishing.

Around Contadora you can find wahoo, dolphin, rooster, snaper. Water shall be warmer than this time of year. Never seen fly fishing from the shore but there are some local boats that will take you around. There are no license requirements.

For deep sea fishing would recommend flying to San Jose Island and Hacienda del Mar, from there fishing grounds are closer.

I am very interested in all of the fish mentioned. I am geared very well for those species and should do well if I can manage to entice one to a fly. Can you tell me what flies that they would be interested in?
