This day was a redfish record for me

The couple days before I had caught one Redfish in the slot size, and I hooked up to one undersized, and so did Johnny. However today was on fire! The reds were stirring like crazy! They were large, and willing to eat my flies. Fly fishing for reds is usually difficult, but it seemed easy today. Plus, I caught the largest red Ive ever caught on the fly rod, the biggest was pushing 27".

Unfortunately Johnny didnt get one today, but I had 3 in the slot size, so I gave him one of mine before I left back home. Redfish is one of my favorite eating fish in the gulf where I fish, well 2nd to flounder. And I already ate one of them. Used blackening seasoning and it was amazing! Just watch out for the worms, because the larger sized reds will get worms in them. I did find one worm in my filet, but it was cooked through quite well so im not too worried about it. These worms actually dont harm humans.

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 short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

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.
