    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.

    Very cool video!
    Remember, no one likes to be behind the big truck, but that's better than being under it!

    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.
