I'd say to stick with carp, dude! All your pix make me want to start with the carp fly thing? I can't make my mind up whether a 7wt or 8wt?
You have made a common, abundant fish something wonderful to go after with a fly rod and flies. You see them in shallow water (like sight fishing for bonefish at Belize) why a stinkin' redfish?
My brother has a big saltwater boat ......... but I still fish for bluegills 99% of the time!
My vote: Bluegills on a fly rod!
Most Red fishermen use a heavy spin with a float and a Gulp bait! Fly rods are at a real disadvantage when you target them!
