Here’s a red from this morning. Friend invited me to fish his boat. We started at about seven, hit a shoreline in the Indian river lined with mangroves. I’ve never fished these mangroves before but there were some nice little cuts and we had a decent shadow line. My friend hooked a smaller snook, maybe 20”, I followed up, in the same spot with the fish below. It tried to wrap me around the pylon’s of a nearby doc, luckily I had a new leader on 40/30/20 and it held. After I released this, I cut a section of leader that was chaffed and retired the fly. Next fish I hooked snapped me off. Guess I didn’t cut enough leader off.

Don't really have a good imitation for these . I just might trim the top and bottom hackle and wings on a couple . Maybe hit it lucky and have a good spinner fall this evening and nail a couple of brookies on top. P5270078.JPG.04f7983c11dbbd17bcc150f448ffef67.JPGP5270075.JPG.333751dd0a8e7bd48dd82a8436d42e2f.JPGP5260058.JPG.d74daf14bbc7e087b371b34f516521cf.JPGP5260055.JPG.6d56672b216084dae831e78f4c6358a4.JPGP5260054.JPG.ac0c61f712efb9a1ebf714f0542aa4ce.JPGP5270070.JPG.4626cb327441ed80f21be0e4ff43a537.JPGP5270072.JPG.0a7af5c971616163d274dab18e3a0d84.JPG

Two weeks on Block start tomorrow. It’s not a pure fishing vacation but I’ll get my time in. I’m taking a 9 and two 10s.
