How many of y'all use fly patterns for reds in NC, I'm going to do a lot of wading this summer behind Wrightsville Beach Figure 8 Island, if any of you fly fish around there what are your favorite patterns? I have not done any serious saltwater fly fishing yet, but I'm wondering if I should get minnow patterns, shrimp patterns, or crab patterns. Even if you don't fly fish in the mid-Atlantic area what do you normally throw.

I was going to take pictures of the flies, but I just looked and all my redfish flies are down at the beach house.
The mud minnows are kind of tan and brown and the shrimp are tan craft fur with black marker(Borski-ized)
I have the recipe for the mud minnow with me if you would like it.

I have similar shrimp imitations, if you could send me the mud minnow recipe that would be awesome.

Mud Minnow

Brown or copper thread

Dumbell Eyes

Brown sili legs

Copper flash

Saddle hackle palmered to eyes

Tan craft fur tied under eyes

build head with thread

tie off behind eyes

trim stray hairs

on some of these, I will put hard head black and paint eyes instead of dumbell eyes depending on what I want for sink rate and what the bottom structure is.

Bon Chance!
