in truth it does sink but pretty slowly. For me a ton of our fishing is done in really shallow water so I don’t need it to be more than about a foot under the water. Redfish and specks are my prime audience. For me the truth is that redfish down here are cruisers and don’t tail too much so a fleeing shrimp is a good way to go and we have two shrimp migrations, brown shrimp in the spring and white shrimp in the fall.
I prefer the white and orange because it does well in our dingy water during the day and well under the lights at night.
Sounds great, I have a tutorial on you tube and I have them up on the website for sale too. So you can try them out and post up a good tr down the line.
It’s easy to get stuck down there. There are a ton of good bars down there. I like the smaller hops myself like the ok bicycle shop or hop jacks.
I have a youtube channel you can check out. Although to be honest, warm water fly-tying is kind of a wild west. There are some great patterns that are what I think of as building patterns.
Things like the wooly booger, gurgler, stealth bombers, and clouser minnows. I would say that from there you can go almost anywhere. This would likely be a good place to start
Good luck and you can pm me if you have any questions.I would be happy to help
Thanks man, I really appreciate it. How are those redfish sliders I sent you working out?
The truth is that there are a huge array of options in the area. This is
true, true but it is what it is
I fileted one of them and I look forward to finding out. I understand that they a quite tasty.
Ballin, I am going to try for some this coming weekend on the lake.
I would love to do just that sort of thing. Very cool work.
Haters gunna hate, no worries. I have been listening from the start and have enjoyed them and shared them with my friends.
Don’t let it get to you ass hats are a dime a dozen.
No worries man, I wasn’t offended, I just didn’t want you to feel that I was a punk that didn’t do his home work. I’m glad you called me out on it though so I don’t make the same mistakes again.
Thanks Mark, very cool patterns and even better photos! I like your way of looking at tying. I think I will get an aquarium and just watch how shrimp move and look in the water.
I am well aware of who Chico is, I have listened to several interviews with him and I use his formula for making tapered leaders. I’m sorry if I didn’t give enough bio. He is a very cool dude.
I have owned the Ultimate 14.5 and have used it tandem and solo. I loved it. The only hold was the boat in wave action. I feel that had I had a spray skirt I would have been golden though.
From what you described, this would be what feel to be the best choice.
If there are two of you then I would suggest the Native Ultimate 14.5. The tandem model is easy to fish out of for two people and when there is just you fishing it converts into a solo.
I would agree though, i would ask how big your son is and what sort of fishing you are planning on doing.
I had been thinking of whipping some of these up, this may have just pushed me over the edge. Great flies!
no more than it is today, a tool is a tool. Try a few rods and stick with it. I would just make sure to find the rod that casts the size flies that you are most likely to use.
You can use a six if you want to but the size flies would make an eight easier to use. I stared with one.
Is that the abomination?
