Light tackle – Port Aransas, Texas

Chip Evans, the talented deer hair fly tyer, takes his new G. Loomis Escape Series (6′ 3″, 2-6 lb. line) and vintage Penn 716 Spinfisher out for a test drive. He sight casts and lands a dozen small redfish. Not bad for a matinee (no, not manatee. I mean not bad for an afternoon).
