Get with SneakyPete on the Louisiana forum, he fishes almost exclusively for reds with flys and does quite well on them too!:D

Oh, ma babe, flattery has got to get you somewhere!
Hope you are kicking some crappie bootie at D'bone! My fly fishing success with reds has come to a sudden stop - hope it's shortlived!
I'll bet Mark (DocW) had a fit last night. That was the sorriest bit of coaching I have ever seen in a football game, and I've seen PLENTY!
Happy Turkey Day
Pete

basic deciever should work fine for reds

Not in the world we live in, old podnuh!
Hook should be inverted for shallow grassy or shell-bottom water - or use a popper.
Deceivers are possibly the worst fly around for redfish in most - MOST - situations where they are found. Of the thousand-odd reds I have caught on fly, roughly four were caught on Deceivers.
Sorry Crappiejohn, but that's the way it was, once upon a time in the Mississippi River Delta.
Pete :cool:
