My favorite to throw for redfish inshore is any black and purple crab/shrimp pattern. Ill usually have some lead eyes on it to bounce off the bottom near any oysters. Also anything brownish in color should work well fished similarly. With the attached picture Ill usually use lead chartreuse eyes instead of bead chain eyes.

With the brownish fly I attached, I generally will replace the orange deer hair with something darker like dark tan or brown to try to mimic a mud minnow.
