Went out with my buddy Tyler to go do some exploring on the east side of the middle lagoon. Visibilty is improving, sunlight toyed with us all day. Still managed 3 reds a piece. We caught all the fish on either a tan craft fur shrimp or a black and purple crab pattern.

Looks like you had a great day on the "Goon"... I live in Lakeland and have been waiting for the water to clear up a bit before heading over to the East Coast to fly fish. Question.. Where can I get a "Darkside Association" decal for my 16' Waterman? I see one on your line tamer and I saw the one Tyler has on his skiff. Tom at Islamarine said Tyler supplied the decal... I would like to buy one for my skiff.

Thank you,

Bob

That's Tyler's bucket. He is looking to have some more made. The water should get good soon.

Nice job Brandon. How about a pic of the fly you were using.

They were Tyler's, I'll see if there might be one left in the boat. The shrimp was a standard Borski craft fur shrimp, but instead of the craft fur, he used Farrah blend for the tail. It came out nice. The crab was a pretty standard merkin black with some purple in it. I'll work on the pics.

This fly caught 4 or 5 of the fish. I don't have one of the crab flies.
