This is awesome…

How many of y’all can do this??? Walk from your front door right to the flat, this guy right here can. I checked out this flat last weekend and hit it today hoping to find some late season redfish. Sure enough after about 30 min without seeing much action I saw a disturbance in the water. I threw my crab fly out there and over shot it a bit, but he turned around and smashed it. After a good fight I landed this guy right here…

He stayed around for a few pics and I let him go. I ended up seeing one more red due to almost stepping on him and that was it for the day. One fish to hand, landed on a fiberglass rod and it made one heck of a day…


Chasing tail…

…and getting some action. Hit the flats early this morning in hopes of finding some tailing reds. I got to the flat as the sun came up and the tide was starting to flood the flat.

I waited a good hour and was getting eaten alive by bugs before the flat started to come alive. Finally with enough patience I finally had a tailer in casting distance. I cast my shrimp Razmatazz over to it…

…the fly landed right next to him, he spun around and with a quick strip set, FISH ON!!!! After a great fight with some knuckle busting runs and getting tangled in the grass I finally landed this guy. Took a quick picture and sent him on his way. One great way to start a Sunday…

I ended up seeing only one more tailer but it never got close enough to cast to. I must say catching a tailing red can get quite addicting…


Turned 30 today…

And it was one heck of a birthday…to get things started my wife once again out did herself and surprised me with a guided trip from LowCountry Fly with ScottyD…and I must say for those of you that haven’t taken a trip with Scotty your missing out…the first flat we hit and there were tailers everywhere…unfortunately they were being a little hardheaded, but after a bunch shots I hooked up…and sure enough landed my first red on the fly…that hookup I’ll never forget…we tried for a bunch more no dice…we hit a few more flats and landed a trout…we tried one last spot and hooked up with another one and he tore off into the grass as we followed and he u-turned out into the flat and broke me off…all in all it was a trip I’ll never forget…
