Default Video - Kayak Fishing for Skinny Water Marsh Redfish on the Fly

I went out of a buddy Thursday morning and we had an incredible early morning bite. My buddy is an incredible fisherman, but he doesn't sling flies. These redfish were so shallow, the soft presentation of the fly was the trick. They were podded up, crawling, and eating almost anything in sight. My buddy made a really cool video from the morning trip with some great fly fishing footage. I had a GoPro on my head and he had his situated behind him in the kayak or in his hand. Enjoy the video! The fly of choice was a "Redfish Crack".

Here is the Redfish Crack. The bottom one accounted for both of the fish. Craft fur tail, chenille/estaz underbody, EP Brush up from with whatever weight of bead chain or barbell eyes is needed. Easy and effective. Olive head and tan craft fur is my favorite.

Nice video, nice fish!

I believe that's the same fly I caught mine on down in the 'glades a couple years back, although I was still really green and the guide was supplying flies. Can't wait to do some more redfishing, would love to get up into the LA/MS/AL flats sometime!
