These flies have traveling legs – looking ‘shrimpy’ and like small baitfish, they attract almost any sub-tropical … tropical flats dweller or backcountry mangrove hugger
[dropcap]I[/dropcap]f you plan a coastal assault on redfish, anywhere from North Carolina to Louisiana, including the Gulf of Mexico or Everglades National Park, bring a collection of 239 Flies’ Redfish Ratlins and Marsh Critters.
Each shrimp/small baitfish replica well reported as being willfully assaulted by reds in North Carolina and in Louisiana, and the Marsh Critter a snook irresistible in Mexico and Florida’s Gulf of Mexico.
Let it sink – go short and easy on the pull! This is not a search pattern, think site fishing
We think that ‘root beer’ and ‘nappy fibers’ create their own legion of gamefish followers … not limited to the suggested animals aforementioned. Nor is the exact tie or hook size an imperative, but it is a staff favorite as shown because it is easy to tie, can be tied quickly, materials are a minimal cost, and uses for materials left over are unending – no waste.
Hook: Daiichi 2546 / 2
Suggested Materials: Cactus Chenille, Polar Fiber, Copper Polar Chenille, Palmer Chenille, EP Senyos Laser Dub Brush, Bead Chain or Dumbell Eyes, Sili Legs
Thread: Root Beer – Dark Red – Black
