Default Upper Slot Redfish on the Fly

Here is a quick video of an upper slot redfish I caught Saturday morning. The fish went 26-27" and around 6 lbs. About 30-35 seconds in, you will see this fish try to hang me when the line flies in the air when he makes a short run and lands around my neck. Crafty little sucker!


Here is a direct link.

Wonderful! What set up were you using? Also, what kind of 'yak is that?

Helios 2, 7 weight with Mirage III reel strung with Orvis Redfish line. The fly was a size 8 bunny shrimp. The kayak is a Jackson Cuda 14. My buddy who you can see standing in his kayak is in a Jackson Cuda 14 also.

Some of the bend could have been from the GoPro but it does put a good bend in the rod to land them sitting so low to the water.
