On the Lagoon

Reds on the Lagoon today. Really crowded with the holiday weekend, but plenty of reds for everyone. This little crab pattern pays off again.

Nice fly, Don!   Is your tan dubbing a brush of some kind (with rubber legs in it)?

The body is deer hair, the collar is EP Brush 1/2 inch, couple of hackles for claws and EP crab/shrimp eyes. Sometimes a touch of EP fiber in orange for egg sack. This always seems to work on the slot reds. For the bigger ones need a larger profile, i.e.  bait fish. At least never hooked a bull red on this pattern.

Saw something this time never seen before. The schools were rolling kinda' , flashing their white bellies. Don't know why but it sure helped us find them.

Nice red.. I really like the fly also!!  Is the water up there clear now or is there still a bunch of algae around?

Water is in pretty good shape. Wind will stir it up once in a while. No bloom.
