    Looks like a great time. May just have to pull the trigger this year. Maybe with the long rod.

    Great video. Really enjoy fishing for shad got my daughter into last year and she can’t wait to go again. I did want to ask though what tackle were you using?

    Deleware shad are the best on the fly rod. Simple flys, easy gear setup and setting the hook by hand is the best!

    Fishing for their cousins the Hickory Shad in RI we have had great success using 2 1/2″ Fin-S fish in Arkansas Shiner on a small jig head.
