Redfish On The Fly In August

Great news, fly anglers.  The redfish are schooling up and can be found on almost every shoreline in Matlacha Pass. The water is still dark as coffee but blind casting right along the mangroves will pull out fish like this one from McArdle Island this morning.  One big hint.  You're wasting your time if you don't see mullet, and the more the better.  Redfish love following the big mullet schools as they swim right along the mangroves and are just waiting for crabs and shrimp to be flushed from underneath them.  If you don't see mullet jumping along a shoreline then keep moving until you do.
