    Default LA redfishing video

    Here's another video we finished up this week, with a little write up.

    Sight fishing redfish is a game of highs and lows, especially with a fly rod. It tests your patience, temper, and the ability of you and your friends not to kill each other after missing or losing fish. It's easy to get wrapped up in taking it too seriously, but at the end of the day, it's about getting out fishing with your friends and having a good time. We're all about positive vibes, and it's hard not to be when you consider just how lucky we are to be able to live in Southeast Louisiana and do what we do. Big thanks to Sandbar Flies for keeping us armed up with the tasty crab patterns to get after these fish.

    Also, some folks have asked me why we trout set instead of strip set in our videos, and if I feel that it makes a difference. I have a rail on my casting platform that makes it almost impossible to strip set without wrecking your forearm, but I've found that with a decently backboned 8wt, it really doesn't make that much difference for me with redfish (would be different with bones). When I first got my platform, I was paranoid I was going to lose a bunch of fish on the hooksets because I couldn't strip set over the rail, but strangely enough, that hasn't been the case. I know this is a contested issue among fly fishermen, but just passing along my findings/opinion. Enjoy guys, and tight lines!

    PS: Happy Memorial Day to all, and huge thanks to any of you who are veterans yourselves or family members of veterans.

    Nice work on the video!
    You need to work on your friends and get them into fly fishing.
