Re: Louisiana Redfish and Specled Trout
Sounds like a trip not to be missed. I can't help on LA but in TX, I and alot of others on the upper coast throw a Redfish Crack. Mostly with tan craft fur with black stripes. I and friends have also done very well with pink craft fur. Clousers are another great fly for Redfish and Specs. All of above is fishing in the marshes. Fishing out of kayaks we have no reason to fish in water above our heads.lol
Most everyone throws an 8 wt. for Redfish but the Specs. you could use a 6 wt. Using a WF floating line is most common since we are normally fishing water less than 6' and more like 1'-3'. Some will use floracarbon leaders and the people who don't will use floracarbon tippet. I throw a TFO BVK 8 wt. and really like it.
Let us know how the trip went.
