Flats fly for the late summer,
August 14, 2013
By: Saltfly73
"WOW! Thought I could not top the Grand Slam Crab.Well how about matching it!! The color's of the Grassett's Flats Minnow is awesome on the hot days at the end of summer. Had I used it in earlier days of the summer, I'd probably would have reports of how great it worked then, but I'll take my experiences as they come. Great fly to have in the box as well, try various colors for your region to see how it works. Redfish seem to like it fine and I have had good luck in the fresh water as well."

Great Fly for Sea Trout,
October 8, 2012

"I bought this fly because I was having success with a similarly colored deceiver, but I needed something weedless. This pattern has a lot of flash, is close to weedless, and has a really nice action. Several Galveston bay sea trout would agree with me."
