“I shuffled through the shin-deep water, angling for the ‘ice cream’ presentation, then paused to pull the trailing coils of stripped fly line close for a smooth shot. I yanked without looking, still focused on the redfish, now dallying at 45 feet.” Joe Doggett and friends fly fish for “shin-deep” redfish on Texas’s South Padre Island. In the Houston Chronicle.
