Tropical Flats Fishing Fishing for Dummies
December 5, 2017
About 10 years ago I got to go on my first flats fishing trip. It was Ascension Bay, Mexico. Looking back I didn't hardly know a thing about flats fishing, what to expect, all the species we would be after, and I certainly didn't have anyone to prepare me. I was a dummy. I had more dumb questions than the courage to ask them, but somehow I survived. Now my life goal is to make less fly fishing dummies and help anglers succeed and not make many of the same mistakes I have. I tried reading all the books, blogs, and magazines I could but nothing prepares you like having wet feet or a good mentor to show you the way. A real voice and someone to politely answer dumb questions is a priceless asset when preparing for a big trip like Ascension Bay because if you aren't asking any dumb questions... you frankly aren't asking enough questions!
Come join me this Saturday at Red's. I am putting on a FREE class intended for anglers going to Ascension Bay with us this upcoming February/March, but there will be plenty of space for anyone interested in learning how to have a successful flats fishing trip. Even if you aren't booked into this trip the bar will be open, the class is free, and you'll learn a ton about fishing for all the Grand Slam species; Bonefish, Permit, Tarpon, and the bonus fish like Snook, Barracuda, Jack Crevalle, and more. Maybe you have a trip booked through someone else, that's ok! Come learn from my years of experience. The restaurant and bar will be open so its ok to eat a burger and sip a beer while you listen. We'll do some casting lessons at the end of the class and I'll walk through fly selection, essential gear, and more.
