“‘Fly placement is critical,’ [guide Rick DePaiva] said. ‘And that carries over to those who like to cast lures or natural bait. You’ve got to place the fly where the reds can see it. If they don’t see it, they’re probably not going to eat it.'” Sounds obvious, but until you’ve seen redfish buried beyond their eyeballs in turtle grass you might miss the message: drag it right in front of their nose.
