Re: Favorite 8 weight bass flies

I agree, gurglers are great fish catchers and very easy to cast.
I don't mind these slider style bass flys either.

Good luck...

Re: New 8weight bass/pike line

OBS lines are great for short casts with big fly's and also great for long casts with smaller fly's.

Not all 8wt rods will feel comfortable...

Re: Redington Vapen or Redington predator?

Not cast the vapen, but I absolutely love my 8wt short predator.

Re: Triangle Taper....Jack of all Trades...Master of None???

I enjoy the TT lost tip in an 8wt for saltwater fishing. Nice line, needs a good stretch staight from the box. Slightly heavier than that stated IMO.

Not good for short casts,...

Re: Line for #6 Ross Flystik.

I've been playing with lines on this rod and found that a #6 trout line with the level tip cut performs beautifully with bass fly's.

Some say this rod likes over lining, not me.
Everyone has...

Re: Australian Salmon

They are regarded as a pest of a saltwater fish, but great fun on the fly.

The fly they seem to like is just some white bucktail and a few strands of flash.

I always end up with the line...
