Pushed off into the jungle before dawn today in a light steady rain.  The snookies are making a very nice comeback in the backcountry.  Hammered the shorelines with fly rods and were rewarded with fish ranging from 12 inches to 24 inches.  Got into a few baby tarpon as well.

Bass Fly

I have been tying a new fly for LargeMouth and Peacock Bass in the Glades.  It’s a baitfish pattern that resembles a Mayan cichlid and they can’t get enough of it.  This past week we have had some violent bites.

Night time Snook

Martin was with me last night sight shooting snook with a fly rod off the dock lights in West Palm Beach.  Hooked a few and landed a nice sub slot snook.  Water still extremely dirty from the fresh water that’s being pumped into the Intercoastal.  I hope they stop that soon.

Redfish up on the flats

Its been a great summer for redfishing up on the flats and should only get better as we move into the cooler months.  Alot of these fish tailing and swimming in very skinny water.  It’s been alot of fun chasing these fish with a fly rod and light tackle spin rods.  Here’s a picture from the last couple of weeks fishing down in Flamingo.
