ASCENSION BAY FLIES & PACKING LIST

Ascension Bay is one of our most popular trips, and we outfit anglers traveling with other lodges every day at Red's. This collection is a few of our favorite rods, flies, leaders, and tackle for fly fishing in Ascension Bay.

It's a very diverse fishery offering shots at Permit, Bonefish, Tarpon, Snook, Barracuda, Jack Crevalle and more! For this reason you'll want a couple of rods with various leader configurations for the different species with a fly for that same fish. Baby Tarpon and Snook are best fished with 40# Shock Tippet, larger Tarpon should have 60#. Permit need 12-16# Fluorocarbon on a long leader, and Bonefish are 10-12# tippet on a lighter rod. Barracuda and Lemon Sharks are toothy critters, for those you will need some wire leader!

As you can see, there are lots of species and options. Use this collection and model your fly list, rods and reels, and leader kit around what you see here.
