Fly Fishing Matlacha: Redfish

With the water temps down into the lower 60's the redfish have been all over the southern part of Matlacha Pass.  The one pictured above was caught on my last charter by angler Wes Furnback on his first cast. That's his dad Doug to the left.  For the next 8 hours the guys threw to dozens of fish that unfortunately became way too spooky thanks to the ultra-clear water.  We didn't connect to any other redfish that morning but we finished up the trip with the guys landing several very big but out of season trout on both fly and spinning gear.
