Florida Sportsman member: SUPER D I switched to 2/0 bend backs, white/gray with dark green and blue flash, brown with dark green and gold flash. I ended the day with nineteen Snook from 17 to 22 inches, and one small tarpon. They chewed up six flies. The water temp never got over 62 degrees, but the fish were spunky and strong, lots of fun on 8 pound tippet.
This imitation of a successful lure works just as well when tied as a fly. All veteran redfishermen are aware of how effective weedless spoons are on reds. Jon Cave knew this as well and wanted to transfer that success to flyfishing.
Here’s a cool little short for fly guys, not to mention, if you haven’t stalked the flats in the Florida Keys yet, this might just convince you. Join captains Bou Bosso and Brian Gabriel for an up close experience of a great day on the water sight fishing for redfish and tarpon.
