If the bottom is firm, stake the kayak out and wade, but be careful if the bottom is muddy. I almost got completely stuck in Sabine lake a few years back when I got out and sunk over my knees!

Yes, been there, done that and not a fan of wading thigh deep mud. Wading is enjoyable on firm substrates, though. I love wading the surf and have waded firm spots like Christmas Bay, West Matagorda and parts of East Matagorda bay. Most of the Freeport area is a death trap of gooey mud and razor sharp shell.

I’ve never liked the hip/waist mounted stripping baskets and find wading without those very doable as long as I’m a little careful about it. Fly fishing allows for work arounds, improvisation, and a lot of personal touches. You can do it the way it makes sense to you.

That 8 wt Sage will work great with a Rio Redfish floating line and 20# Dacron backing, no need for braided backing for redfish. Keep the flies simple, redfish aren’t picky and they have very poor eyesight, your not dealing with a Permit in gin clear water.

Texasflag4 When to fish weighted fly line. on a 8-10 wt fly rod.

Use a good weight Fwd floating fly line for swallow water.. with a 8' to 10'- 12 to 15lbs tippet for trout and reds. If fly fishing over ten feet of water go to a sink tip line. I drift blind fly fishing most of all the time and do well. mostly in 1 to3 feet of water..

another way to improve or get some ideals on fly casting.. Google all of the fly casting for beginners, Watch as many different instructors, each one is a little different, this is a good learning base on casting. Then practice, practice in back yard or on a field some place. Good Luck! Or you may come spend the afternoon with me on fly casting instructions. I have taught my neighbor's son how to fly cast, my grandkids, friends kids.
