fly fishing the texas & Louisiana Coasts
Targeting redfish on fly is truly one of the most rewarding experiences in saltwater angling. Fly fishing can be one of the most effective fishing techniques in shallow water, and its popularity is growing rapidly with saltwater sportsmen. Baron Boyette of 3B Fly Charters specializes in guiding novice and expert fly anglers alike in position to sight-cast to cruising, tailing and waking reds.
All fishing is done from the bow of a technical poling skiff, allowing anglers to spot and stalk reds from an elevated and stealthy position. Most casts will average between 30 and 45 feet. Depending on the clarity of the water, casts may be as short as 15 feet and as long as 60. A fisherman who can accurately cast 45 will be in a great position to hook and land multiple fish.
Aside from redfish, anglers can expect opportunities to cast at sheepshead and black drum, as well as the occasional speckled trout or flounder. While redfish are generally the most favorable fish in our waters to target, the above species provide a fun and challenging alternative on the flats.
Individual fly casting lessons can be arranged and are recommended for novice or first-time saltwater fly fishermen. 3B Fly Charters is 100% catch-and-release. Fly fishing only.
**Please note, due to the difficulties of having multiple fly lines in the water, only one angler is able to cast from the boat at a time. If you are unfamiliar with saltwater fly angling, please let us know so we can inform you on what to expect!
