I think fall is the best time for reds in Texas....but really any time you can go is a good time. We have one of the world's greatest flats area down on the Laguna Madre and it can be great for shallow water reds....but if I had to pick the very best place I know of it would be the Indian River out of Titusville Florida. Year around outstanding red fish on the fly with shots at really large fish.

Oh I have to agree with the above statement, I posted real quick and logged off without fully getting into what I wanted to say. If you are looking to go and have a great time and catch your first redfish on fly, you can't beat the LM. You stay in Texas and you can find some pretty good deals on hotels if you look or just camp out.

Posting a video like that when I'm stuck in Amarillo in a hotel is just cruel and unusual punishment. smile

I have avoided the Saltwater Fly Fishing forum for a long time because I feel like I don't want to get bit by this bug.

Looks like I've got some problems now.

I've got to give it to Louisiana. I've fished there with Capt. Bryan Carter and have seen some great water - filled with fish ready to boost confidence levels beyond rational levels. In the total of about 10 days I've spent on the water there over the last 3 years, I've seen one boat that was fishing. It's close and cheap, too.

However, wade fishing for tailing reds on the Texas flats always gets me excited.
