    Good questions as you don't see too many of us who target fish this size. You are right about YFT and also billfish being very strong and tiring to fight, but one advantage a fly angler has is the...

    Yes, it's a 20wt. :yikes: Steve Rajeff at GLoomis made 5 20wts for a few of us who were targeting large tuna on fly after the IGFA opened up the 20 lb tippet class. I was lucky enough to get one as...

    Re: Reel to match a 7wt T&T Exocett

    It's hard to beat a Nautilus price wise, or an Abel or Tibor (not on your list tho), and if you watch eBay and your local craigslist every day you can often find some good buys on used ones.

    Re: thinking about a 9 wt

    I'll second the TFO Mangrove. I have their 9wt and it has done a good job on a lot of larger species, including an 18 lb albie recently.

    Re: Costa Rica

    Understand. But keep in mind that fishing for snook along the beach or mangroves, bay, etc., in the US bears no resemblance to DIY fishing for snook along the beach in the CR.
