Capt. Justin Posted November 14, 2008 Report Share Posted November 14, 2008 Our snook switch from mullet to small baits around this time of year, and the fly fisherman definitely have the advantage. Being able to use a very small fly over a noisy plug, or jig really increases your numbers. What may be a 5 fish night with a plug, can easily turn to a 40 fish night with the right fly. This fly could not be any easier to tie, and the snook, and other dock regulars, just can't resist an easy meal. I was fishing near a kayak fisherman last night, he was throwing a topwater. After observing me land about 8 fish he came over and asked what I was using. I showed him my tiny fly, and he could not believe it. He then called it a night, I did not see him hook up one fish in about 45 minutes. I suggested he try throwing a fly next time...
