So i need help finding a setup the would be easly casted from a kayak but still has the backbone to fight the Reds and specks I want to catch. I have not found one fly shop around close so I am searching the net for some help. Any ideas
Change lines first...my preference for hot water fresh or salt rio bonefish or permit or cortland 444 tropic plus...you are in a kayak so unless your are a lefty kreh or joan wulf..your not going to get 80 foot distance...change line first see how you cast ask about your cast ...try mobile or n orleans or if northern miss delta bayu try memphis fly shops
