I have never caught a sheepshead on the fly in Texas. I have made what seems like thousands of casts that appear to be perfect only to see the sheepie flee in abject terror of a 1" piece of fluff like it were a grenade going off in the water. These sheepies all speak ****-Ass:

Great pics. Only thing spookier than the reds around here (Tampa) are the sheep...can't even nod in their direction. Still hoping to catch one...

Not bigs ones like your's E-money, but sheephead on the fly nonetheless. One of my bucket-list fish is to catch at least one, if not a few giant sheepies like you got there, on fly. Maybe I make a point to look for one this winter.
If you make it to Louisiana give me a shout. I know where to find a few :D

Few of mine, one of the wife’s and a few caught on my skiff.

The night picture ones were one of the coolest sheepie experiences I have had. They were siping micro crabs(smaller than a dime size) off or near the surface ona hard outgoing. You would cast above them with a small fly strip it a couple times to get some attention then dead drift it.

We caught like 10 than night doing this trick. Kinda felt like cheating, kinda felt like a small victory, haha.

Sounds like you were using your Montana nymphing/streamer swinging skills to use.
