  2. Hello, All really good looking tyes. At present I am working on tying and fishing Flat Wing Flyes in colors and shades useable in Florida waters. The Flat Wings were started in Rhode Island by Ken Abrames used for Stripers, Blues, Albies, and Bonitio. So far I've just tested my tyes, Tracking seems to be good and castability good. Directions can be found on U Tube. Happy Holiday to All. Tight Lines and Fair Winds wademan
  3. My wife and I lived in Gulf Shores. West Beach was a good area to fly fish, walk the beach and wade out in the Gulf of Mexico. The only fly shop was in Fairhope Al. about half hour away. Orvis was the shop and outfitter. Great town as well. Hope this helps. tight lines wademan

  5. Looking for info on beach access and locations. Hope for Blues, Bonitio.(sp). Any Help would be great. Thanks in advance. wademan
  6. ​Off Gandy Blvd to the left is good fishing from Weeden Island. I have waded most of the area some years past. Lady Fish, Small Jacks, and Spotted Sea Trout. It Is open from sun-up to sun-down, was free to enter but you may have to pay now. Seven and Eight weight rods floating lines, 9 to 10 foot leaders are good. Clousers, Bendbacks, White baits are good. ​Hope this helps Wademan
  7. ​Have been using Allen for my hooks for about six plus months and very happy with service and product.
