    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.

    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

    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.
