Chris Lewis of the Skinny Water Culture blog, who sent us some pics from Flamingo, Florida back in September, recently sent us some more pics, this time including a species you don’t often see:

Just got back from a 3-day 2-night kayak trip from Flamingo to Islamorada. It was an amazing trip. We caught too many reds to count. I also broke off two really big bonefish and got a nice black drum.

As you can see, this redfish did a number on Chris’s (non-Orvis) fly rod.
