Sometimes the bite is on and game fish will aggressively smack anything that’s thrown in front of them. Those are the good days. But as every angler knows, there are days where the fish are picky and are only keying in on one food source. These are the times when having an arsenal of flies that resembles all the prevalent bait fish in your particular location is a must. Our fly shop carries all the flies that every fisherman should have in their box and the ones that work best when sight casting on the shallow flats.
Our motto is simple: High quality materials and attention to detail produce high quality flies. Decades of experience have led to a collection of flies that we feel is perfectly suitable to the Gulf Coast and to the species of fish we love to target. We take pride in providing proven field-tested patterns that serve the fishermen who live and breathe the back lakes and shallow flats.
The spoon fly is a favorite among Redfish. When you’re seeing lots of Redfish up on the flats, tie this fly on and let the good times roll. They simply cannot resist the flicker and flutter as it moves through the water. The flashing and the low frequency vibration sounds it emits when being stripped excels in murkier waters.
Floating on the surface, this fly will pop, splash, and create noise when being stripped. It is superb at grabbing the attention of fish from a distance, in murky water, or when the visibility is low.
Countless years of field testing have produced crab flies that are designed to have the perfect amount of weight to slowly flutter down to the bottom and not rapidly sink into the weeds where fish can’t see it.
This is a fly that has slowly evolved over the years and has earned a loyal fan following. It has plenty of fish seducing movement and imitates a variety of bottom dwelling critters such as shrimp and crabs. At rest, the legs and tail flourish in the water, but when retrieved the materials flow back and create a pulse-like action.
This isn’t any kind of fishing, this is sight casting. Stalking the shallow waters looking for a fin breaking the surface. Paying attention to the smallest ripple and every disturbance of water with a keen eye. It’s almost hunting, an endless pursuit of prey. Seeing the fish, making the perfect cast, executing flawless timing and presentation. That rush of adrenaline watching the fish eat. That’s what we live for. That’s why we sight cast.
