Headed to Tampa
I'm heading to Tampa Monday morning. Looks like Ft. DeSoto park is the place to go. Tables say high tide is in early afternoon, so I don't know exactly what water conditions I'll find, but we will see.
Meanwhile, have to tie some Clousers this weekend. Have a few redfish flies left from last trip to Louisiana -- between those and the Clousers maybe I can interest something.
Ended up getting a Scott A2, 4-piece 8-weight. Pretty dang nice rod, seems to be capable of shooting more line than I'm able to manage. And it'll be much easier to haul thru the airport than my old 2-piece rods. That reminds me, anyone have any issues with airlines letting you carry a 4-piece on board?
