Flies

We have a lot of folks ask us about the flies we are using while fly fishing the flats in Rockport and the surrounding area. So we have begun to compile a collection of our favorite patterns here, for all to see. While we have only been able to add a select few for now, we will continue to add to this page as we can and keep everyone up to speed with the flies we are using.

Topwater

JJ's Tube Top

JJ’s Tube Top

  • Our favorite topwater fly and colorway for redfish and trout.
  • The Tube Top is light, easy to cast, yet still makes plenty of noise in the water
JJ's Private Dancer

The Private Dancer

  • The Private Dancer is all about movement in the water.
  • A little larger than our other topwater flies, this fly will “dance” back and forth when stripped and still have plenty of wiggle while resting as well.
JJ's Chug Bug

JJ’s Chug Bug

  • The Chug Bug is always solid. Tied more similarly to a standard gurgler type fly.
  • We tie these in a variety of sizes and colors. This fly has caught everything from redfish and trout, to jack crevalle and tarpon.
JJ's Tube Top Fly

Other Tube Top Colors

  • A few of our favorite color ways for this pattern.
  • We tie these in small, medium and large sizes for redfish and trout. XL for jacks and kings.

Shrimp

JJ's Spicoli

  • A good little shrimp pattern for fly fishing for redfish.

JJ's Marsh Mop

JJ’s Marsh Mop

  • A very simple and easy to tie pattern that catches fish.
  • Tied with bead chain eyes, so it is lightweight. A variety of colors work well for reds, trout and sheepshead.

The Pronz

  • A realistic looking, and swimming, shrimp tube fly.
