Naples Fishing Charters and the Straw Boss Fly!

A few days ago,¬†I had the opportunity to fish with a good friend Joe Mahler. Joe is an extremely talented illustrator and is responsible for the logo for Naples Backcountry Fishing! His illustrations have appeared in many national fishing publications and he has a fantastic book on knots and rigs! His book, Essential Knot and Rigs For trout is a must read and features incredible how-to’s for knots and rigging leaders. Aside from illustrator and writer, Joe also offers expert casting lessons¬†which is a must for travelling anglers looking to tighten up those loops or gain a little extra distance. The real reason I bring up my friend Joe though is his incredible fly th Straw Boss! This unique little fly, originally designed for bass, has quickly become my got to for snook and reds. Several of the fish I have recently posted pictures of fell prey to this deadly little creation. Tie some up and try for yourself, you will not be diappointed!

Here is a picture of Joe with a nice little red that fell to the Straw Boss
