Ask about our custom build rods starting at $200.00

Suggested Equipment

Rods:

  • A 7 or 8 wt rod will work well for 90% of what we do.

  • You can go down to a 4 or 5 wt for bluegill back in the freshwater, though a heavier rod may be better since you never know what they might eat.


Lines, Leaders, Tippett:
Fluorocarbon bite tippets are recommended to keep from breaking off on the many sharp oyster beds in the area and also because you never know when a species with an abrasive mouth or sharp gill plates (tarpon or snook) might grab your fly.

  • Floating lines to match your rod weight.

  • 16 or 20# tippet for trout and redfish with a section of 30# fluorocarbon bite tippet.

  • 16 or 20# tippet for snook with a 40# fluorocarbon bite tippet.

  • For  Largemouth Bass I fish a floating line with 16 - 20# tippet with 30 - 40# bite tippet.


Flies for Redfish, Snook, Trout and Bass:
All flies should have weedguards.

  • Poppers and gurglers - 1 to 1/0

  • Borski’s Bonefish Slider - chartreuse or natural

  • Rattle Mullet (redfish, trout, snook)

  • EP style baitfish patterns

  • Chartreuse Redfish Candy


Other Recommended Items:

  • Polarized sunglasses (preferably copper or amber tinted)

  • Hat with a wide brim

  • Lightweight rain suit

  • Warm jacket for early morning runs
