  1. I'm looking for suggestions of a few Louisiana redfish flies. I'm fishing the Venice area in June. My guide provides all flies, however I want to try a few patters and give them a shot just for fun. He suggested size wise 2/0's or 3/0's, tied ~5 to 6" in length. His "go to" fly is a variation of Dan Blanton's Whistler or a fly called "Willie The Pimp". Not a lot of info online about "Willie", at least that I can find (Was Frank Zappa a fly fisherman?). He likes flies that push a lot of water. Though water conditions dictate fly selection (crab, shrimp, baitfish) and color, he also suggested big crab patters that move some water for large black drum. 95% of the flies I find online are for smaller reds, very little on the size flies he suggests for bullreds & black drum. With that said how about a 2 or 3 suggestions that might be in the ballpark of what I'm looking for? (Please no deer hair, I plan on posting a separate thread on Willie the Pimp)
  2. This is my new video. Let me know what you think. Borski's Redfish Slider's are great flies for redfish and seatrout. The most common inshore forage for the gulf fish is brown shrimp. This fly mimics the brown shrimp wonderfully. It moves really nicely in the water due to being tied with craft fur. Hook: Gamakatsu SS15 Hook Size 2. (you can use any saltwater long shanked hook) Weight: Dumbell Eyes (I used 5MM size) Body: Craft fur (I used tan, but you can use any color to match the shrimp in your area) Collar: Streamer sized saddle hackle (Red, pink, or orange to resemble the egg sack on shrimp). Head and upper collar: I used elk hair, but its more traditionally tied with deer hair. Elk hair tends to be slightly less buoyant, but deer hair is easier to spin Music: (Happiness & Sunny) Bensound.com https://youtu.be/Il9EgYAoNPM
  3. I fish this for redfish in the gulf. It does well for me. Let me know what you think. https://youtu.be/JGTNbsT715Y
  4. Finally got to toss these woolhead mullet in the water and they are everything I could ask for and more, so I tied a few more variations. So far only a few trout, but i will find you Redfish! Smaller can be better - Size 4 Pre-Barred craft fur from Hobby Lobby - Stuff is kinda funky (in a bad way) And a slider...
  5. Just received a bunch of new materials Saturday and these are what I have come up with so far. Really like tying with the Sculpin wool, and the Peacock feathers are fun too! Not sure about the XL aluminum eyes yet... but we will see. I cant wait to throw these as soon as the water warms... someday. Mullet - ish Big ugly - Should ride hook point up, but I am not sure how the Aluminum eyes will effect it yet.
