Everglades Tailers from Chris Lewis on Vimeo.
Chris Lewis (and Skinny Water Culture) have a nice new video short featuring redfish tailing in the Everglades. Very nice.
From the video maker:
“4 minutes of happy redfish digging in the grass. All footage captured from my Bote Board in Everglades National Park.”

More on this fly fishing destination:
The Florida Everglades are a United States treasure that you have to see to be able to fully understand how spectacular it really is. Truly unlike any other place, the Everglades are incredibly remote yet not too hard to reach, as Everglades National Park is about an hour south of Miami International Airport.
Everglades National Park is nearly the end of the road for the Southeast U.S. if it weren’t for the Florida Keys, which edge out the Everglades for that corner of the country. The Everglades consist of a vast amount of wetlands that allow for a range of fish and animal species. Occasional panthers, manatees, alligators and crocodiles are among the living attractions, and for anglers, tarpon, snook, redfish, cobia, bass, and sharks are among the main attractions.
Flamingo is often the go-to departure spot for saltwater fly fishing trips, and anglers can journey through numerous creeks and bays exploring for fish for hours, often without seeing anyone else in the vast wilderness of the Everglades.
Finally, as the National Park Service boasts, Everglades National Park is, “An international treasure as well – a World Heritage Site, International Biosphere Reserve, a Wetland of International Importance, and a specially protected areas under the Cartagena Treaty” (nps.org).
Awesome video. Makes me want to throw flies at em.
