Default Re: Hanging up in Lily Pads

I fish around & thru Spadderdock pads. We don't have lilly pads in the tidal rivers I fish. At least, I've never seen any. I use a wire weed guard, which for me has been the best for preventing snags. Unfortunately, it can hinder bites too sometimes.

But, I spend more time fishing, do hook up with some fish & spend a lot less time retrieving snagged flies.

BTW, I'm also often using a 9 or 10 wt, and 20 to 25 lb tippets.

Not as stout as the 50 or 65 lb braid I use with my baitcasters, and more fun IMO.
