My favorite way to fly fish is on foot, wading, and there are some great grass flats on public land. Depending on where you live, you can fish for speckled trout and redfish with clouser minnows and topwater poppers a few minutes from home and still be at work by 8:00. Think intracoastal waterway in the shallows, and some of the best fishing is from the mainland side. Trout are still in the rivers and bayous, and will be on the grass flats about the time local pecan trees bud out in mid/late April. I'll also be doing some snapper and grouper fishing on nice days in the gulf if you want to try some gulf and bay bottom fishing later on.
