Vaughn's Fly Box Picks:
I've talked with Ray Stansberry, the manager of Cajun Fishing Adventures about the flies that anglers should have when they come to fish in his waters. There are a variety of flies that are productive depending on the time of year and prevailing conditions. These consist of some minnow patterns, spoon flies, crabs and a few streamers. In addition to the flies highlighted below, Ray also suggests some custom flies that they have developed over the years, the Delta No-Name Shrimp, the Cajun Bunny and the Rattle Rouser.
This list will be refined as we go along but if you follow these guidelines you'll have success.
