It’s that time of year where our Fly Fish Rockport fly fishing guides are taking advantage of any opportunity to sneak away from the flats, and out into the blue water in search of our favorite migratory pursuits. Every Spring we await the arrival of our Kingfish (King Mackerel). These toothy predators lurk just off the beaches of our coastline and are a great target with a fly rod. But you’ve got to have the right flies in your box!

Here, Fly Fish Rockport guide Captain Gibson teaches you how to tie one of his favorite patterns for Kingfish. This is a must have when fly fishing nearshore or offshore. It will also fool jacks, tarpon and cobia often.
