Been enjoying each one as they come out. I have to say I’m very excited about the River Striped Bass podcast!!!!
I would likely tie it with red foam like any other beetle pattern and the hit it with the sharpie then loon it. Should be a nice quick tie.
Zach I have read just about everything you have posted on river striped bass, I appreciate you sharing the info on a subject that has way too little written about it. Keep em coming!
I saw him in a fly fishing film my wife bought me called way points. It was a really good! I enjoyed the podcast as well.
Wow, very very cool.
I would really like to see an SBS on those flies. They looked very very affective. I’d like to give them a try.
For me i would be kosher with some one tying with any materials they bought THAT DAY. And I would think it would behoove the owners to teach a bit especially how to use different materials.
True story, true story. I’m not big on the whole scene but the redfish are. I think it is the sort of pattern where they take the fly out of curiosity.
Nah no LSU, but the purple chartrues is a good pattern to get their attention. We call it the Fat Tuesday Toad. The real trick with the fly is to do a lead wire wrap on the hook shank. This gets it down to where it needs to be but makes it swim more like a fleeing blue crab.
I dig, what boat is that?
Justin I live in Mobile, AL. So any of the delta waters or around the island work well.
Jeff I’ll post the link for you. All you have to do is add things like palmers chenille or whatever else to jazz it up.
Way to go man, i am thinking that a native Slayer is in my future!
A friend and I went all the way out to the Bilouxi marsh for redfish and it was pea soup. Too much fresh water and the wind has been whipping non-stop this summer so far. I’m looking towards fall already.
They rather look like mantis shrimp. A very common and tasty critter. For fish and people. I especially like the top pattern.
I’m in Mobile now and so for me its a sojourn to make it to prime striper waters. But what I do want to try is the last couple native run gulf striped bass rivers here on the coast. But with Juvie tarpon being caught here in the bay, I admit my fervor is a little dim at the moment.
Hey man, I read your article on spey fishing stripes. An amazing read. I am really looking forward to trying it this coming spring.
That sucks. But I suppose it’s going to happen more and more though, especially if the market takes it in. The internet allows for a global market place and international trade law is sketchy at best for such issues. I would think though that the quality of American made gear will always be in demand and the Chinese are still a ways behind, or that would be my understanding.
