Fly Fishing in Gulf Shores, Sweet Home Alabama

Well, the rain is coming down with afternoon tropical consistency here in Gulf Shores, Alabama. Sure it’s a little early in the year for tropo weather patterns, but the wind is whistling through the balcony door, and the forecast is for a 180-degree wind shift to due south, promising to grind the bay into a coffee colored consistency.

We gave it an all day go yesterday, and saw and caught no fish.

Fly fishing can be such a fickle mistress. Like they say – that’s why they call it fishing, not catching. Time to cut bait.

    I too have only heard of mullet being used as bait (although, what do I know?) but a quick search of wikipedia, and it turns out mullet are eaten more often than we’d thought!

    That’s why God created spinning rods and live croakers!
