Fly Fishing

fly_fishing In south Louisiana we have millions of acres of shallow marsh where redfish love to feed. The aquatic vegetation that is so abundant here acts as a filter and nursery for the area’s crab and shrimp population. For this reason, the redfishing can be nothing less than spectacular!

Anyone who fly fishes knows that it takes precision, patience and true skill to land that fly in the danger zone. Here you get the chance to hit it over and over, because we have such an abundant resource.

The bayous of Venice provide an optimal environment with their still, calm, undisturbed bays and coves... That is until you stick ‘em. Then all that’s left is to hold on for the fight of your life.

Redfishing Here In Venice

Redfish, unlike many species, are not all that picky. They are very aggressive and will inhale just about any type fly thrown in front of them. That’s why they’re one of the most popular fish targeted by fly fishermen in the area.

Fishermen should use a 7-8 weight rod, and backing is a must. Some of these reds, in less than a foot of water, can exceed 40 pounds.

Fly patterns used most commonly here are: clousers, spoon flies, or anything imitating a crab or shrimp.
