Aside from "Bulls On Top" another really good topwater redfish video is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2_iasmUObyg In this one they use a "Hotlips" gurgler, which is a gurgler with a top and bottom lip. I love the fly, easy to tie and it makes a fantastic sloppy sexy plop plop noise in the water. On thing about "Bulls On Top" at the beginning you see a LOT of misses, this is a pretty accurate picture of fishing redfish on top. Catching redfish on top is incredibly exciting, but the very thing that makes it exciting creates a lot of missed shots. Redfish have an inferior mouth, slung on the bottom of their head, they practically have to come out of the water to eat on top, that makes it exciting, it also makes it a somewhat low percentage game. They don't always want to play on top, but when they do it's a heck of a lot of fun.
