Dick,

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh - NO!!

The take is not the same.

Going to Tampa area in mid Feb - with a wading guide - He spins fish most of the time. He says he's not much of a fly guy - but will practice with a fly rod before I get there. 

Hope to post some nice red fish pix.

You can teach him.

Santa Clause was very good to me once again and as usual, toys for the old man ruled the day. My big gift was a new Dyna King vice and I had no idea that the first thing I would tie on it was not going to be a fly.

 

Each year I go to Sanibel at least two times a year but that did not happen last year which also meant I had lots of time to think about lots of things. The one thing I really thought was this year I wanted to expand my fishing by trying to break out my spinning rod and use some small jigs for the Snook when the wind was not user friendly. I have a friend on Sanibel who slays the fish using a 7 ft spinning rod with 10 lb Power Pro, a bite tippet and 1/2 ounce jigs. After observing him for a few years I decided that I would follow suit and see how things would go on the Dark Side.

 

The new vice actually got broken in making up a bunch of 1/2 ounce jigs which hopefully will get me through  the year since they will not be my first choice. I know they aren't flies but it's fishing.

 

The final product.

Exactly what I do, Bonefish. Light spinning gear with lures when the wind and waves preclude the fly rod. I'd rather fish with a coffee grinder than sit home and tie flies. Good man yourself! Those jigs look fishy to me.

No blackmouth this morning, but hard to beat having the beach to yourself on a nice crisp bluebird winter day at sunrise.
