Crustaceans, shrimp, crabs, oysters, worms, pinfish, baitfish… dead or alive, it doesn’t really matter, redfish are opportunistic feeders and they eat just about everything. So catching them on fly should be easy right?
Not for me… For years redfish were my “White Wale” on fly. Too spooky, near misses, had ’em and lost ’em, terrible tides, you name the excuse I heard it or said it. For the vast majority of us, catching redfish on fly is just not that easy… and tying and designing flies for them, takes a little more than luck and a sharp hook.
