New best snook on fly, 27"
Location: Beach on Gasparilla Island
Tides: Low @ 0930
Weather: Sunny, Hi/Lo 91/72, Winds ESE 4-8 mph
Fish: one snook @27"
Tactics: 8 weight fly rod, white DT-Special with red head
Notes: New personal best snook on the fly. The fish was on the edge of muddy water created by an eddy on the shoreline. I was able to sight fish it and had an excellent 4-5 minute battle with two long runs. Its rare that I catch a beach snook on fly that can't be stripped in, but this one was on the reel almost immediately. I was lucky to have a few joggers who slowed down to watch the fight stop and take the picture.
