Take a good look at these two photos I took last fall. What do you see? I know one thing, I don't tie streamers without pearl flashabou anymore. This is happening now. Bait is coming out the inlets this time of year and fish are chasing them. Mullet runs are almost over around here but bay anchovies and glass minnows (spearing) are starting to make their fall appearances and the fish (spanish mackerel, false albacore, speckled trout) will be chasing them in the surf and offshore. Tie flies with with these pictures in mind and maybe a touch of red somewhere to tempt the trout if that's what you're after.
