Greetings from Kingfisher Flyfishing! 

This first photo is evidence that there is good flyfishing to be had down here in February. Now, I am not saying February is my favorite month on the Lower Laguna Madre. But there are plenty of good days to be fished.  This photo, taken two days ago, was the first catch (30+”) of a very good day on the water with a good friend and regular client of mine. Congrats Bryan!

As most of you know, Truett and I own two skiffs, both www.newwaterboatworks.com; our trusty Stilt and our brand new Willet
Give us a call. Now is the time to book for the spring and early summer.

Another 1st red on the fly!

Last week I had the pleasure of having Scott and his son Samuel on my skiff for one day. It was a tough day as we struggled with clouds and wind all day. We saw quite a few redfish. But, the fish were mostly hidden by the lack of light (and blinding glare) until they were 20 feet from the boat, leaving us little or no time to present a fly before the fish fled. I want to commend Scott and Samuel. This was their first time chasing reds with a fly rod. I see many first time saltwater fly fishermen wilt under the pressure. This father and son team showed courage and dedication all day as they continued to concentrate amid difficult conditions and very finicky fish. I always enjoy getting out on the water but, because I am human, I enjoy some clients more than others. I really enjoyed your company and look forward to seeing Samuel catch his first red on a fly rod in the near future!

Way to go Scott! Perfect cast! Perfect hook set! Another first redfish on the fly!
