EZ tie and it also works well for lady fish. I fished it right along the surf line/sand at dawn. I fished at Navare which is just west of Destin. Tie several in different sizes or take your fly tying stuff with you. You may need to match the hatch so to speak. Have fun
I tied a few of those for the gulf next spring. hopefully I have some luck.

I have never fished dock lights for snook but I bet they will work well there too.

thanks for the advice. Trip was great. I had a blast. Caught flounder and some ladyfish and one good size needlefish. have to say best two baits where the marabou tail and estaz body with bead chain eyes in white and a gummy minnow. I did see one real big red just could not get him to hit anything.

Good to hear that the trip was successful, too bad you couldn't entice the bull as well! Theres always next time, I'm still looking for a big red...

I am proud that I could help with the estaz/maraboo fly. Glad it worked for you. It had worked for me when I was in the area.
