Pine Island Fishing Report: Sightcasting To Big Reds In The Sound

Great new for all you fly anglers:  the waters of Pine Island Sound are clearing up beautifully and some nice schools of redfish are still cruising the grass flats out there. I spent the last three days fly fishing with angler Terry Rusthoven who splits his time between Colorado and Central Florida.  We found piles of big reds in Orange Pass and on the flats near Cabbage Key but getting them to eat a fly was a real chore.  The few that did eat were over slot fish that took deer hair sliders and spoon flies dropped right on their heads.  If you're out there tossing live bait you should be sick of catching them by now.
