This Chartreuse Clouser Minnow is one of my go-to patterns for big redfish in the Delta Marsh south of New Orleans. I like to tie this streamer pattern with relatively light bead chain eyes so that my fly doesn't sink out of sight too quickly. Big redfish charge this fly and eat it as soon as they see it. I believe this redfish pattern imitates a shrimp or a small baitfish.
Capt Matt guides fly fishermen to the big redfish south of New Orleans. Sight fishing is best in the clear shallow water of the Mississippi Delta Marsh October, November and December. This fly fishing is as good as it gets. If you would like to book a charter go to http://www.riplips.com Lunch, tackle and fish slime provided.
