    It is the most frustrating thing in the world when you first get down to fishing this sort of place. Living in Mobile, I came from fishing warm water streams and rivers in central Alabama and I was about ready to break my fly rod after the first summer down here.

    it seemed like Redfish were a myth and specks were too. But You learn. Tell ya what if you’re still down there, do your self a favor and hit the lighted docks tonight with a small clouser minnow or deceiver in white. There are specks under those lights right now and they are more than willing to eat a fly. They are waiting,

    Check out places like this http://pensacolafishingforum.com/fishingforum/ and talk to the folks down there. And the next time you come down this way you can drive a bit and fish with me in Mobile and we’ll see about getting you over the idea that saltwater fly fishing is a snipe hunt.

    And the boys are right, it boils down to time of year and water temp. But there are plenty of fish to be caught. Here is another thing to check out, http://www.mbkfa.com, we’re happy to help out too.

    I’d try to get in touch with a fly shop down that way. They should know a few guides that can get you where you want to go and fishing how you care to fish.

    Thanks guys I appreciate it, does that rod roll cast well? Or would a slower rod do better in that? I have always used my old fiber glass rod for when I would be doing in close work and lots of roll casts.

    Neal, that tutorial was the best thing since sliced bread! Keep em’ Coming!

    Mark lemme say that my experience has alwasy been that for the most part fish are looking for the right action, the right profile, and the right general color. In that order and if it does those three things you’re very likely to get a hook up. JMO, and great looking fly, ought to ace a pike or stripe.

    Thanks for the heads up fellas, I appreciate it.

    Keith and Tim, I appreciate the first hand experience. Keith, have you ever had that shark sin burn your hands when a fish goes on a run?

    Thats cool to see Zach, here in Mobile the MBKFA (Mobile Bay Kayak Fishing Association) and the Bayou Coast Kayak Fishing Club (out of Lousiana) fish together a good bit. Many of us enjoy fishing their Falling Tides Tournament in the fall. I beleive that a number of them are members of the Red Sticks.

    Definately a good group of people.

    This is my Native Ulitmate 14.5, its my bass boat, flats boat, and drift boat.  I love this critter. I apologize for the photo quality it was taken with a camera phone.

    The Tamen idea is fun to read about but the asain carp are a very scary thought. Here in Mobile we are fighting against amazonian snails that are working their way to the Mobile Delta. This is pretty big considering that the mobile-tensaw delta is the second largest the US. So right now im not big on alien species. Just me though.

    I agree with that. craft fur is definately best suited for tails. If you make a clouser out of craft fur I would leave the wing as buck tail or body hair. You can make some really cool shrimp immatations that way.

    How about something that makes the weather/wind/rain cooperate with saltwater trips?

    All part of the game down here. Some times I think I’m not allowed to fish unless the flags outside stand straight out.

    I have a Native Ultimate 14.5 as well and I love it. I even take friends out for reds and in deep brush for bass when the boat is set up for tandem. When I fish like that I normally stand and pole from the back. It is super stable and very fast.

    I have never used a freedom hawk or seen it used, but I do like the concept. I feel it would be rather slow though.
