Fly Fishing TB 11/19/12
Decided to take advantage of low tides early in the afternoon and look for some reds with the fly rods. The fishing was tough even though Rob and I saw over 100 redfish, several snook, and found a pocket holding some very large trout. Clean water was at a premium. The outgoing tide made the water off color which made it tough to sight the fish until we were on top of them. We managed a few fish by blind casting some deeper holes on the low tide. Fish were caught using crab and shrimp patterns on 7 and 8 wt. gear. I tried out the 5 wt. but did not get any takers. The Ankona ShadowCast got us exactly where we needed to be....in about 5 inches....where the reds were rooting through the grass.

The highlight of the day....
Nice. Thanks for sharing.
How do you like that rod and reel? (The 8wt clearwater) Also nice fish!
Very nice, great looking fish. :thumbsup
I have gotten more questions about that set up than anything else. It's great. Reminds me of the old Hydros. For the money and the warranty, you can't beat it.
