Default redhorse

Yes, it's true, I'll fly fish for anything! The redhorse are spawning on the shoals and will readily take a fly right now. These were caught yesterday swinging a flashback seducer, (a fly I tied at Troutfest), The males are bar striped with engorged red fins and white knots on their snout, I guess that must be very attractive to the females. The larger females seem to fight better and they take on a nice golden color. They are a blast on a light fly rod, just watch your knuckles, cause they will make some reel screaming runs.




an average female with eggs coming out.


males will swipe at the fly and sometimes get foul hooked.
