Corpus Redfish Fly Fishing

Another day, and a couple more reds! After years of heading down to corpus with horrible luck, finally I think I have figured out these reds. The last 3 trips Ive caught redfish, and this trip was one of the best Ive ever had. The weather was horrible, with rain, heavy wind, and the cold made me wish I was at home by a fire. However, all of that was worth it because the redfish were on fire!

Now I went down, and fished 3 separate days. This video is on the first two days fishing. I fished alone the first day, and was able to fish with Johnny for a few hours on the 2nd day. The wind was very bad though on the 2nd day, which made it difficult to land any reds. However Johnny was able to get one the 2nd day, but it was just shy of the slot size. I got a 17-18" the first day, however I also was able to get a slot sized red that was 24". In Texas, the redfish have to be between 20-28" to keep. And you can keep up to 3 per day.

This spot that we stumbled across a few months back is one of the best redfish spots ive ever fished! Its a flats area, that takes a while to walk to. In fact its about a 2 mile walk, though tall grass and mud. But the walk is worth it! The reds are everywhere, and generally you can see them chasing bait in the water. They are actively feeding in this area so they readily take flies if presented properly. The best part of it, is that the walk deters other fisherman from coming to that spot, and therefor we have the whole flats area to ourselves. I have never seen anyone back there, or even seen foot prints (except for hogs, deer and crane). Pristine fishing, that I am very happy we found.

The rod I was fishing today is called the Goliath Rod. Its made for this type of fishing, in heavy wind and for big fish. Its powerful and saltwater rated. The reel is called the "whale" reel, and it also has a powerful drag, fully machined, and is saltwater rated with a sealed drag. I love this setup. Both the rod and reel are manufactured by Risen Fly. Their prices are amazing for the quality of gear they sell. And above all their customer service is un matched in the industry. Best of all, they are offering all my subscribers a discount on their already great prices. So go to and type in "McFly" at checkout for 15% off of anything in their shop.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
