Florida Sportsman member: Docked Wages After we were convinced that no cobia were in tow we broke off pursuit and stumbled across a school of redfish. It took me a while and finally I got one to eat! This being my personal best redfish on fly. He got so far into my backing I got really nervous about breaking the line or pulling the hook.
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.
Forum member Prhea36 put together this awesome video of fishing the low winter tides of Naples on the fly. With the awesome eats and action shots throughout the video, they definitely got it dialed in!
