Default Contrary to my previous belief...

you do NOT have to travel to the BIG EASY for great sight-casting to skinny-water fish. I'd like to thank Scott Wagner of Savannah Fly Fishing Charters for temporary relief from my serious case of saltwater withdrawals.

Default Skinny Water Reds

The Georgia Coast has great sight casting for reds, and it is relatively undiscovered.

Winter is a great time to go. The water clears and the schools of reds can number in the hundreds.

Thanks GB... I even got to test my "Louisiana" style redfish fly designs and found that they work equally well on the Georgia Coast!

That is a trophy trout! Were you seeing a good number of tailers?

Zac... the beast of a trout was quite a bonus since I'd already landed 8 reds on that same fly. I rarely get specks or anything else besides reds to eat my spoonfly. It was my first trip to this area, but according to Scott Wagner - NOW is the time to sight-cast to big trout on the same flats as the reds. We did see several small pods of tailing reds right up against oyster bars in about 6 inches of water. I assumed those fish were keying on crabs or shrimp. We also found several larger schools of reds eating finger mullet in water less than one foot deep.
