Design Inspiration & Detail

If any fly has it all, Capt Jesse says this is it! The bulky head pushes just the right amount of water, the marabou tail wiggles like nobody’s business, and the colors are just right to get Redfish fired up! Most variations of the Redfish L&D sell at $17.00 for three. For further info on Jesse and a look at more of his fly patterns, see Flies by Backwater Fly Fishing.

Target species would include, “Redfish!!! Snook, Seatrout, and baby Tarpon have all fallen for this one too.”
