Although I am a bonefish super freak and a recovering tarpon junkie, snook are the species that haunt my thoughts and keep me up at night. Especially the big girls that lurk in hard to find places —way back in the mangrove creeks where there is barely enough room for a skiff, and casting through a tunnel of mangroves is tricky to say the least.
The journey through these spider-laden labyrinths to the land of Jurassic Park-sized snook, is almost as exciting as the fishing because you just never know what you might see. It took me over 8 years to finally brake the 40" mark and get it on film. That being said, the bar has been raised and my yearning to catch an even bigger snook becomes stronger every season.
Targeting big snook in the backwater takes some patience and persistence, and over the past decade, I have honed my techniques and paired my selection of flies down for this particular style of snook fishing.
The patterns presented have been rigorously tested and have a confirmed track record for persuading educated snook in the mangrove creeks and backwaters of Florida.
Whether you’re fishing lights at night, blind casting the bushes, or sight fishing floating fish … the detailed instructions and clear step-by-step photos in this book will ensure you have the know how needed to create flies that will best even the most educated of snook.
Snook Flies 2 was great investment. Not only did it give me some patterns to place in my box, but it got me thinking about snook fishing in a completely different way. I had done enough beach and paddle board fishing for snook to know my way around, but I hadn't thought that much about depth of presentation before I read this book. The chapter on the Tuscan Bunny alone was enough to wake me up to things I'd been doing wrong; not to mention a completely different way to tie. Drew is a real innovator, and you can see that clearly with this fly. As for Drew being great person, he blew me away when he called me directly in response to an email I sent him about preferred SUPs. He took the type to go through all of my questions and concerns, even though I'm sure they were pretty lame given the differences in our skill levels. I really appreciated him doing that, and I'd encourage everyone out there to help support this guy. He's awesome.
The e book version has great pictures. You can zoom in and see the details.
Info and photos were top shelf. Very detailed descriptions on each step. Learned a lot!
Once again Drew gives us a practical manual revealing his go-to flies for backcountry Snook. These are secrets most people don't share but he shares everything about these flies. How he developed them and why they work. I have been looking for something like this for years. Thanks Drew.
