Just got the report from some of the SoCal boys that just got back from Hopedale, Louisiana, fly fishing last week with our friend, Miles LaRose of FlySouth. Seemed they hit some pockets of poor weather and had overall slow fishing with moments of grandeur. That seems to be normal for this time of year. Its a hunting game, when weather allows. I usually say that if you string four days together and get one or two good days of fishing, your doing great in Louisiana. Weather is always going to be a moving target in the gulf. For first timers to the Big Easy, excluding Warren who technically fished there last August, the boys did great. My buddy, John Whitaker landed that bucket-list, bull red of 31 pounds on a Q purple/black fly, which i was stoked about. Warren got his first Sheepshead on the fly and a beauty at that. Nice going boys!

Ooh baby them’s nice fish! Well done.
getting a sheep on the fly seems incomprehensible to me, as around here they are so subtle only a few get them on baited jigs during the summer… if at all!
I understand that Warren is one of the all time very best fly fishermen so it probably very easy for him to get a sheep or is it a shaggy dog story?
