Default Re: casting a 5wt?

thanks for the insight guys. what tippett size should I start with? I guess I will need to practice for a while before heading up to the carolinias.

Frank,

we went out 2 weeks ago for some tarpon.... at 11:30pm the water temp was around 85-87 degrees, found a lit dock holding a few in the 20-40lb class. threw shrimp pattern and worked for the hook up. The fish took 2 jumps and then just layed down. That was the shortest fight of my life. heading out tonight to see if we can put some more tarpon and snook on the fly.
