An escapist blog about Radio Controlled aircraft flown aloft by free peoples in the free skies of America for recreational and therapeutic purposes. And fly fishing. And corrupt politicians. And a rifleman and pistolero's life.

Spring Harbingers of Victory
Landed and released several of these before an April front today. Where these little Redfish were today will be their larger buddies soon. Can't wait! So I know where some big Reds are right now!
"Click" the image for a closer look. The Key to bagging them on fly in Spring is simple: FIND them! They'll eat! But until the shrimp bury themselves in greater numbers in the sand later in the Spring, I find a PIGGY PERCH/ PINFISH barred fly on a #4 hook with mini lead eyes to be choice, as this is the abundant prey at the moment (one can feel the "piggies" kissing one's legs while standing--always a good tip-off to prey availability at the moment).
