I began fly fishing at about the age of 13 with my grandpa’s fly rod, mostly for bluegills and bass in the few freshwater ponds I found growing up near Satellite Beach, Florida, and continued for a while after relocating to Titusville, primarily at Fox Lake. My rod was a 5 wt. freshwater rod, not really created for the seatrout and redfish of the Indian River Lagoon system, though I did handle a few seatrout here and there utilizing little banners created for freshwater rainbow and other types of trout normally connected with cold-water northern and mountain streams.

This enables me to alter lines as the weather changes, while the front loops enable ease in placing on brand-new premade leaders.
