This has really been provideing are anglers with lots of opportunity’s at really big fish. These big females have been going crazy on a well placed and properly fished fly.

My seven year old nephew Brenon came to hang out at Red fish camp this weekend. The kid is hilarious. It was a nonstop barrage of questions like ,"Who do you think would win in a fight between Wolverine and Shredder? A question that has been plaguing me since I was seven. He would then go on to explain, "Wolverine of course! You see while Shredder may have access to a seemingly endless supply of foot solders which would make him seem like the obvious choice, all of the foot solders in the world are no match for Wolverines quick healing ability, adomantium skeleton." Thanks buddy for clearing that up for me, now i can rest easy. Try as you might you just can't keep up with him.Eventually we were all at a loss for answers. So we had no choice but to take him to Sector 6. That place is amazing. Every sq. foot is covered with something to jump on, fall into or swing from. While there we caught up with Captain Al Keller who was able to give us a couple pointers on how to carry oneself while at Sector 6. Thanks Al. We had an awesome time hanging this weekend. I'm pretty sure Brenon will be back for halloween and i know he can't wait because he showed up Friday wearing his costume. Who is he going to be for halloween? ..............Who do you think?
It can be very easy to get caught up in our day to day routines sometimes and forget about the beauty that surrounds us. If you can remember to stop and look around every once in a while you can find something amazing in the most unlikely of places, people and things. In early July we were fortunate enough to spend a few days with Patagonia photographer Andrew Burr.He joined us in Eastpoint,Fla and was given a tour of the area by a few of the R.D. boys. "Grit water" has never looked so good as it does through the lens of his camera. We at Red Fish Dynasty would like to thank Andrew for taking the time to remind us of just how fortunate we are to do what we do and we can't wait to have him back.
Ninja or shinobi are legendary assassins who existed in feudal Japan between the 15th and 17th centuries. They were know to have supernatural abilities some of which include extra sensory perception, invisibility, shapeshifting, the summoning of animals, control over the five elements and a complete mastery of an arsenal of weapons. A proper fishing guide will possess all of these skills and more. Captains Travis Huckabea and Cody Cash Moody of the Red fish dynasty clan are two such guides. They have spent this past summer judo chopping and ninja kicking every tarpon in Florida that was unlucky enough to cross their paths . I have never actually set eyes on either one of these elusive masters but it is rumored that they have been spotted somewhere in the waters from Venice,La. to Biloxi marsh using their understanding of these ancient arts to stalk and acquire the red fish that their clients desire.
