Headed to the Big Easy

Heading out on Wednesday for some R&R which will consist of chasing around redfish in the marshes of Louisiana. Since starting fly fishing, this will be my second try at catching some on a fly rod. Needing something to turn over bigger flies as well as the short distances I was able to aquire a TFO Mini Mag blank to build on.
Choosing an all black weebed reel seat and stainless black snake guides I put the finishing touches on it last night and took it off the dryer this morning. I wrapped the guides in dark black and all of the trim work was done in teal color. For a hook keeper I uses a snake guide for a different look.
Now to catch that redfish.........................
