Dorsey’s Kwan

Target Species

Redfish, speckled trout

Water Types


Date Published



Fall and winter on the flats brings clear water and lower tides. Most of the baitfish have left the flats, leaving crabs and shrimp as the main prey for redfish and trout. The clear, low water makes the fish even spookier than normal, if that is possible. You need a fly that will cast and land quietly to target and sight cast to fish during these times. Dorsey’s Kwan is a fly that was developed for fishing in these conditions.
