Each year is a little different, but typically around late April or early May the snook start their annual migration from the rivers, creeks and backwater estuaries to the gin clear water and sandy beaches to spawn. The massive funnel of fish disband into small pods or strings of individuals and cruise up and down the shoreline in knee-deep water. These ghost-like shadows drive anglers crazy violently busting up rafts of glass minnows and white bait with reckless abandonment. When the water is clear, seeing 30-40” fish is a frequent occurrence, and over the last 10 seasons of chasing snook, I have honed my techniques and refined my selection of flies down to just the key essentials required for hoodwinking this exceedingly erudite fish. The pattens presented have been rigorously tested and have a confirmed track-record for persuading copious numbers of scholarly snook. This selection of flies will ensure you have the entire water column covered and give you the ability to "Match the Minnows" size and location in the water column, no matter where you are fishing. Thanks to the help of my fly tying friends, I will teach you how to tie the Captiva Cannibal, Strawboss, Petticoat Streamer, Dirty Squibbster, Crystal D, Neon Knight, Lightsaber Pilchard, and Gibby’s DT Special. • Detailed step-by-step instructions for tying 8 proven snook flies essential for catching Snook from the beach.
