Re: Pelican lake Orr, MN

Pelican lake Orr, MN

Has anyone else fished this lake? Going up there next week. I've been there a few times, caught some nice bass, but have never fly fished it.

Re: Not enough backing?

You've all made valid points, and I now realize Dacron is definitely the way to go. Looks like I'll be making yet another trip to the store haha. Silver creek, your point about drag change makes...

Re: Not enough backing?

Thanks for the ideas, I'll probably respool it with Dacron when I get the chance. Would it be possible to just buy more gel spun or would I need like another 300 yds to fill it?

Fly Line For Musky

Yea I already have a 10wt, just need some line. I'm thinking 400 or 450 grain at this point. Do any of you have a preference between sink tip and full sinking line?

Re: Fly Line For Musky

Thanks Ted, do you think a 350 would be a good fit?

Re: Fly Line For Musky
