Redfish Fly The ReyRam Saltwater Fly

| November 18, 2016


The ReyRam is so named because I originally found the photography and recipe for this simple to tie fly coming from Dr. Rey Ramirez from Brownsville, Texas, many years ago. Although it probably has another name, and I know from talking to Dr.Ramirez in subsequent years, the fly has evolved to be a lot more complex (with the same underlying fundamentals apparently).

Well, I am a simple guy, who loves a simple fly tie. So here is the original, unfiltered ReyRam. I have caught a lot of redfish, and trout on this fly over the years, and it is my first go-to when the seasonal flies are not producing. Now, we all know that when we have extreme CONFIDENCE in a fly, that means we work it more, work it better and subliminally – IT WORKS BETTER for us. That said, you give the fly a try, a tie and a try, and see what you think of it.

As the audio says, there may be someone out there who has another name, or another origin for this fly. Just like there hasn’t been a photograph that hasn’t been taken, there isn’t a fly that hasn’t been tied. Feel free to update me with the origins, or other (more / less accurate) names for the ReyRam Fly if you like.

Have a great weekend, and enjoy the cold weather finally here in North Texas!
