It’s fly fishing time!

We hung out with Insider Member and former Orvis Instructor, Joe Sherer, the other day where he taught us how to tie his favorite redfish fly, which he has named the “Salt Strong Redfish Fly”.

This is the fly Joe has used to catch redfish all over the Gulf and Atlantic coasts, and he’s teaching us the quick and easy way to tie this productive fly.

Glad that Salt Strong is including fly fishing and fly tying to the offerings. Nice presentation of that fly patters’s tying. It’s an easy one that will work.

Steve Crowder

Great video. Would like to see more on all aspects of fly fishing in the salt.

Tim Benson

Thanks – Nice fly Joe! Looks like it’ll be effective and an easy tie. I’ll give it a try!


Are these for sale


Tied one up and slayed the trout today with it. Didnt see any reds to throw at but either way it works.

Luke Simonds

Awesome news!!!

Stuart Secler

Great video! I’m very new to fly fishing and found your video amazing….. You made it look sooo easy….. is there a way to make the fly weedless around the mangroves?

Max Del Monte

Great work Joseph! Thanks for sharing and thanks to Salt Strong for making this video! Looks like a super soft landing fly for those spooky reds. Would love to see more content for the fly fishermen on here.

Gregory Ramko

So very cool. I used to tie flies as a teen and let life take me away from this hobby. I still have all the equipment and material. Would love to see more of these type of videos. Such a great art form.

Joe this was really neat, I’ve never seen anything like this done before. I have great respect for anyone that can catch a fish with a bug. Even more for a person that can catch a fish with a fake bug. Even more for the person that can make the fake bug that catches fish!! You are really awesome, thank you for sharing this with us!

I think this is a very productive fly he should work well in the mosquito lagoon area I’ve tied it and paste it myself many times in life love the way the fishes

Guy Leveille

Joe! That was intriguing to watch! I’ve never actually watched a fly get tied before (probably not good for a self-professed fly fisherman, albeit a rookie for sure!) and you made it look so easy! I enjoyed it even more after having met you at the Christmas party. Now that spring is basically here, I’m hoping to get my new 7/8 Reddington out on the water. I need to give you a shout sometime and we can go chase some juvenile Tarpon around Indian River together! Thanks for doing the video! Very informative indeed!

Ron Whetstone

Hey Guy we should hook up some time and tie some flies. I have a few basic patterns that I have learned that will get you started. Its not very hard. Definitely need to do some tarpon fishing this summer with the fly rods.

Guy Leveille

Sounds like fun to me, Ron, thanks! Count me in! If Tarpon are on the list, you can always count me in!
