Yesterday was a delightful day, with 11 year old Walker Stipes of Atlanta using my Stradic 1000 and his dad Greg casting a fly rod. Greg hadn't ever caught a redfish on fly, so we went to the Mosquito Lagoon to try to do the deed. It took 30 minutes, the slot sized fish coming on a SexyFly bendback. Greg said, "OK, let's go to the power plant." So we pulled the boat out and went to the power plant. It was good, non-stop. Walker tossed jigs, Greg various flies. Their tally included one crevalle, four tarpon jumped and one boated (by Greg, his first ever on fly), three snook (by Walker, his first ever on any tackle), and at least 100 ladyfish, ranging in size from 8 inch cigars to 30 inch, hard charging fish. It was a very fun day.
