Saltwater Flies Selection
My fly fishing clients always asked about flies and what my top choices. Flies for saltwater in South Carolina are pretty simple. A few months back I was fortunate enough to have spent a day with the world renowned fly designer , tier and caster Bob Clouser. A small group of us sat along the Santee River in Georgetown South Carolina. We talked about life , casting , fly tying and of course fly fishing. I asked Bob what his favorite color was for fishing saltwater and with no hesitation he said “chartreuse”. Bob has spent a lifetime fly fishing all over the world and for him to say chartreuse…well Ill take that the bank. I put together a short list of the top Saltwater flies in my box for fishing our area. Pawleys Island and Georgetown have an unbelievable amount of mullet in the marsh from June – November so I like bait fish imitations . One of my favorites is the Kinky Muddler tied by good friend. There’s hundreds of patterns , colors and variations of saltwater flies. These are just a few tried and true patterns for South Carolina Saltwater Flies. Proven on Redfish, Sea Trout, Lady Fish, and Flounder here in the Low Country.
