Heckling and badgering is not only expected but encouraged!
Isn't this how it's done everywhere?

In the upper left portion of the following photo the water over the weeds is only about 12-inches to 24-inches and in the evenings the big browns move into this area to feed at will. We call it "Tortuga Flats" and the sight fishing for these beasts is the most incredible thing I've ever experienced. My favorite fly is a size 10 (no typo) amber scud. I find a "tailing" fish and try to determine which direction he's moving and then drop the fly just off of his shoulder and a bit behind him. Usually the fish will turn at the sound (sometimes he'll spook at the sound ) and then he's all over that scud. Hold on and keep your hands and feet inside at all times!
