Re: Reel Love, the fly reel thread
Joni says she uses a 30 foot leader for lake fishing in her belly boat. I've been
using 12 foot leaders on lakes lately, and adding a bit more weight to the
fly. I've never used split shot with ff'ing gear, but I'm sure it would help. While
I've fished deep at the local lake with all kinds of fishing gear, 99% of the
fish I catch are in less than 6 feet of water, and 99% of those are within 20
feet of the bank.
