    I had the opportunity to cast a very interesting line today on the flats. A buddy of mine had a Finatic 7+ with a Scott Sector 8-weight loaded with Competition 2020 from Sunray. Itís a micro diameter...

    Re: Best Light Saltwater Reel on the Market

    No need to look any further than the lineup at Allen Fly Fishing. Kraken, Atlas, or Omega. Take your pick they are all fantastic reels for the money. The Omega is the most expensive but I donít think...

    Re: New Flats Fly Lines

    Ah thanks! Yeah thatís the one I want then, I prefer the regular bonefish taper but do like the the direct core feel of the flats pro.

  8. Re: Lightest leader/tippet for bonefish you have used

    When I go way down to 3, or 5-weight I will normally use 10# or 12# flouro tippet. Never any lighter. Flies also get downsized to size 8 for the light gear, normally I throw size 4 and 6 with 15#...

    Re: 6 wt saltwater rod recommendations

    Snook maybe. The power and backbone is needed to keep them out of structure, but if itís bonefish we are talking about that is definitely wrong. The more pressure you put on a bonefish the harder it...

    Re: Lightest weight rod for Ambergris Caye

    It all depends on the wind and target species. The Bones there tend to be on the smaller side so you could get by with a 5wt if there was no wind, but if the wind is up you will want every bit of a...

    Re: best bang for the buck

    When I hear the term ďbang for buckĒ I immediately think of Allen Fly Fishing reels. Just so tough to beat. Another good one is the Alpen Stone. Fantastic reel for the money.

    Re: Huntington Harbor 8-18-2019

    Fishing the PCH bridge is allowed now? I used to get kicked out of there on a regular basis. Of course that was 30 years ago. The sunken rubble of the old bridge was my spot.

    Re: Beach fishing with Tenkara

    The problem so far has been the connection to the tip of the rod. I have an idea for next time if or whenever I get the urge to try it again.

    Re: Beach fishing with Tenkara

    I know a spot where smaller bones frequent (2-3lbs) but the shock when they take off is just too much. I try to go from high stick to full knee bend reach but so far itís been a fail.
