Default Re: Rod for Redfish

Louisiana is MUDDY water, clear water there is 3' of viz and a long cast is typically 40'...

I have a LOT of days in the area he will be and know it well...

Sure you can spot em if they show their back at distances of 80' but your guide shouldn't have you casting that far at them. There is no need for it...

Get a rod you can cast well with at distances of 10' - 40' and that will cover 99% of your Louisiana Redfish fly fishing needs...

Take come Chart/White Clousers and be sure to take some surface flies that time of year as well, Dahlberg Divers in Chartreuse will work well. I am not a fan of those spoon flies, they work well in grass, but a lot of that areas grass was destroyed by Katrina and the chart/white Clousers will work day in and day out, no problem...

Just my two cents
