Spoon-fed Reds

I just got back from a fishing trip to Port Aransas on the Texas coast. It was a flats thing … kayaks, fly rods, tailing reds, sight fishing … you know the drill. Not so this time. The wind blew like hell and the flats lay smothered in heavy fog most of the time. Sight fishing was out of the question, so the exercise rolled over to blind casting.

However, good news follows. The redfish were in the shallows and on the prowl. All it took was a little flash to get their attention … flash provided in the form of gold spoon flies.

I made these spoons using light-cured resin instead of epoxy and I like the results. I will post the recipe and tying instructions later.
