When God made America, He looked into the future and saw the Cajun people that were to inhabit South Louisiana. He knew how much we liked to hunt and fish so He blessed us in a special way. We call it Lagniappe*. When it comes to fly fishing in Louisiana for Redfish, the marsh west of the Mississippi River Delta are second to none. It is the fertile silt that flows from much of North America and is spewed into the Gulf of Mexico by the "Mighty Mississippi River" that sets Louisiana fly fishing apart from the rest of the country. Once this precious commodity is released into the Gulf, the unceasing westerly flow of the Gulf Stream skillfully places it's treasure right smack dab in our back yard. It is because of this that our marshes are more vast than all of the other states combined.
