    Default Redfish flies?

    My wife and I are going out for redfish for the first time the last week of June. We will be fishing out of Savannah hopefully to some tailing fish. Does anyone have any recommendations for flies? I've booked a guide who I'm sure will have his own preferences, but somehow I just prefer to have some tied up just in case.

    black and gold bendbacks
    black and purple bendbacks
    gold spoon flies
    gold rattleback fish pattern
    clousers in black and gold or black and purple

    all good choices I love chasing reds.

    Don't forget the shrimpy and crabby patterns if you are going to be casting to tailing fish. I like the black Dupree spoon, Qwan type patterns, and shrimpy looking patterns for tailing fish.
