Fighting the wind...

May 09, 2013

The wind in Charleston has been no joke this spring and truly exhausting to deal with at times. With a solid flood tide on Tuesday night and the itch to track down some tailing reds Capt. Newman of Tidalfly Charters and myself headed North with great hopes. We pulled up to the edge of the grass and waited for the tide to rise. We watched a few fish belly crawl in a couple inches of water but could not quite get to them. Then when we finally had enough water on turns the fan and a constant 15 mph winds (at least). The fish were still tailing  but hard to get a fly in front of them. As we were finally giving up and cussing the wind a few tails popped up in casting range and down wind. James made a beautiful cast and the red crushed it. this fish fought hard with the water temps still down and was a perfect first fish for the new gloomis 8 weight. Sometimes you just have to keep your cool and stick with it.
