"I created this fly out of necessity of needing something bigger andheavier while fishing down in Louisiana for bull Redfish. Essentially, Ihad shown up with more traditional sized flies more geared towardsthe gulf coast of Florida and the fish were not reacting to the flies likethe guide wanted.
The Po’ boy can lend itself as a baitfish or shrimp, the poor watervisibility allows you to get away with a less realistic look and focusmore on the profile and depth at which your fly is fished. By using a jighook, this helps ensure less hook ups on weeds or oyster beds,keeping you in the game when it counts the most." - Alec Gerbec
