Default Big Tuna help

After 5 decades of long range fishing using every type of artificials you can imagine I am finally getting into big tuna fishing on the fly from an anchored
West Coast Long Range Boat. I am looking for any and all recommendations for everything from fly selection, best connections, best fly lines, etc. I have spent most of my life landing big fish on small and light gear so I have the technique for fighting fish but the fly thing for blue water big fish is brand new to me. I love fly fishing salt water flats and trout but have never done the blue water thing. I am thinking some of my connections may not be up to the new task. Any and all help is appreciated.

As a note I am also looking for a spare Abel Super 14 spool. Any color will do though I just purchased a beautiful used Super 13 in Marlin colors so of course Marlin would be my preference.

Also looking for another 14 - 15 wt. fly rod for better casting of flies. My gusa is a beast for lobbing shooting heads but would like another rod for loading up and casting lighter lines

Thank you

Jamie
