sheepshead on fly

Was trying out a new spoonful pattern I tied. I was casting under the mangroves and had caught a few little snook. Then this guy grabbed it and wanted to go deep for the mangrove roots. Thought I had a nice snook. Put up a hell of a fight. Only the second sheepshead I have ever caught on a fly.

    Good eating too! I've caught one and like others have cast at many on the flats.

    Outstanding, what a great catch. I was wondering if anyone caught sheephead on flies, now I know.

    Sheephead are mad fun on a fly rod, there is more fight than fish with them.

    Was out on Sunday looking for reds and blacks, but my buddy managed to find the stripes instead. His first Sheep on fly.
