Every dedicated fly tier has a story. John Holbrook’s story is the best I’ve every heard, and by the way, if redfish are your passion, his insight into patterns and fishing for these bruisers is pretty damn impressive, too.
I have always been a keep it simple kind of guy, so it should be no surprise that there are only four fly patterns in my fly box during summertime when Redfish are tailing in the Lowcountry high marsh grass. Each has its own special purpose. I will start with my #1 pick and most productive overall.
