Default Re: Lake Erie Steelhead

I use a 2x, 9ft, tapered leader, but they are expensive and after a few fly changes to get a color to work and a couple of break offs, I begin to use a surgeons knot and add leader to keep my length around 9ft. I try to maintain 7-8 lb wt flouracarbon rig'. I use about two tapers a day and modify.

In new york streams you are not allowed to use two flies to fish for steelhead.

I'd be afraid to use a 4, or 5x and loose more fish to breakoffs.
