Default Re: Tampa Tarpon

Keep it simple is great advice on leaders but you risk loosing a fly line, backing, etc by using straight anything over about 30lb test as the backing most used is 30 lb test and the saltwater fly line cores range from 25-35 lbs max. use a 60 lb test piece of mono if you'd like but add a 22 lb test or lighter between that and your shock or bite tippet. Rather than risk losing backing and fly line, use a short length of what is commonly called the class tippet to ensure the weak link is near the fly, not near your reel arbor.

Name a couple please for instance? perhaps some of the new ones do but a couple years back the max was as I stated. I do note that Rio put out a couple of deepwater lines with high core strength. By the way my research back then was directly from Rio, SA and Cortland.

Here's Rio's offerings: http://www.rioproducts.com/fly-lines...loating/tarpon click on the specifications box to see the technical specs.

Here's SA offerings: http://buy.scientificanglers.com/lin...chnologies=183 look at the chart that's on the left side
Cortand says: http://www.cortlandline.com/products/section.asp?id=244 clicl on the more info blocks on the Tarpon lines!
