Another reason to love the Keys

As if you needed more.  Another lousy day in paradise.  Out on the kayak in the afternoon and chased down this fellow.  Not to bad for a Lower Keys Redfish.  He fell for my not so well placed but enticingly stripped Merkin.  Once I spotted him and moved the kayak into position, I threw the fly and after a second cast, he spotted it and moved on it.  Wait a second and then strike.  Fish on.  Not too bad.

I spotted two more reds that afternoon, but couldn’t get the boat into position.  Also almost ran over a giant snook.  Got to love the Keys.  Now, if I can only track down the Tarpon and Bonefish…
