Why Redfish Lodge?

Brian –

I just wanted to let you know again how much I enjoyed the trip this past week. I do not know when or even if I will get back to RFL, but if I don’t get back for awhile, this past trip was a great way to remember the relationship I have had with you guys over the years. This trip will go down as one of a handful of fishing experiences I will remember and treasure for a long time. The wade we did Friday morning along the St. Charles shoreline was truly a once in a lifetime experience. The setting, the weather and the fish all cooperated to make it a truly memorable event.


Sheila Barley of Alto, New Mexico, does battle with a giant black drum in Corpus Christi Bay while her husband Milton looks on. She was fishing the March drum run with guide Brian Holden on a trip to Redfish Lodge. These drum make their spawning run every March and can vary in size from 25 to 70 pounds.

I think I have been coming to your place 2-3 times a year for at least 10 years. What I always tell people that I like about RFL is that you always know what to expect. You are reliable, consistent, and first class. The rooms are always immaculate, the food excellent, especially since Chris has been the chef, the service from the night staff very gracious, the people genuinely friendly and helpful, and on top of everything else, surprisingly consistent fishing. It is a place I can bring anyone from the most elitist fly fishing fanatic to the most novice non-fisher person and be assured that they will enjoy themselves and have a great time. Hopefully some of the recommendations I have passed around will generate you some additional business as it has with people like the Bamberger folks. Good-luck to everyone at the Lodge and especially to you personally. You are a fine person and I am sure you will be very successful at whatever you choose to do as your life unfolds.
