Re: Redfishing, a little help?

I'm in South Carolina, so I imagine it's just a little bit colder here than in Tx. I've been wanting to get out but between 1) my fiance's birthday this Friday, 2) Thanksgiving, and 3) work being...

Re: Redfishing, a little help?

I dont have any craft fur, EP hair, or estas, so I had to make my own redfish crack using white bucktail (striped w. a sharpie), red maribou, and spun deer hair. I forgot to add weight, but that...

Re: Redfishing, a little help?

Honestly, the only oyster bars I could find were the two spots I fished adjacent to #10 and #9. The current there was very strong. If I anchored and squared my yak broadside against it she would chop...

Re: Redfishing, a little help?

I happen to have a fiberglass 6ft A-frame in my garage. I imagine I could tow it out on a $10 inflatable raft. I'd just need to fabricate a base to give it a bigger footprint in the mud below. And...

Re: Redfishing, a little help?

The tide was moving out. High tide was at 8:22 and I hit the water right at 8 so I know I had it working against me, but by 9 the tide was starting to move out. I could really feel it when I went...

Re: Redfishing, a little help?

About the only sight fishing I could do was to flooded grass that was obviously being disturbed by large fish beneath the surface, and to some nervous water. I fish from a kayak so my view is...

Redfishing, a little help?

So I went out into the inlet on Saturday and got skunked. I started throwing a brown/green #4 fiddler crab fly, then a olive/white deceiver. I'm not arguing the fact that as a new fly fisherman I'm...

Re: Bass Pro White River Fly Shop Bass Taper Fly Line?

I know this post is old, but it's helped me (or at least lead me to think of line dressing). I have the BP Bass taper line on my rod and noticed that (while practicing in the back yard) when I'm...

Re: saltwater kayak angler thread

I met a guy at Bass Pro who said he hooked into a 300lb marlin while kayak fishing with some friends 2 miles out. He told me the fish towed him about ten miles out to sea but after about four hours...

Re: First rod/reel

I probably will tie my own from here on out. I was just using a short shot of 14lb to practice with but it was laying out very nicely. Better than the store bought leader and tippet. I also found a...

Re: First rod/reel

Thanks for the input guys. I spent probably two hours today practicing. It is a strange phenomenon how I can watch videos and read instructions for hours, but I come down with amnesia once I start...

First rod/reel

Okay guys, I'm new so please go easy on me with the criticism. I finally put together a rod and reel (line, backing, etc) and am looking for input. I'm severely constrained budget wise so high end...

Re: saltwater kayak angler thread

I bought my Future Beach Angler 160DLX a few years ago and I honestly can't remember what fishing was like before it. I admit, it is a pain to lug a 70lb+ boat onto the car, off of the car, to the...

Re: Myrtle Beach???

Hey guys,
I just joined up here and live in Myrtle Beach. I wish I could offer guidance on fishing here but so far my experience is just in freshwater for largemouth. I'm getting into fly fishing...

Re: Hi, I'm James

That's what I'm afraid of, Thorsten. I remember when I thought I'd "try" fishing from a kayak. I've since only fished from shore maybe three times (aside from casting a few topwaters to bass just...

Re: Hi, I'm James

Thanks for the warm welcome. I've been doing a lot of homework on fly fishing, as well as tying, and even reading about making my own rod. I do like what I've heard about the TFO rods though. The...

Hi, I'm James

Hey folks,
I'm new here, and also new to the art of fly fishing. So new that I haven't even landed my first fish on a fly, or made my first cast, hell I don't even own a fly rod yet.

Not to bore...
