  1. What weight rods do you use with this size leader? What do you use for surface flies as flouro sinks? I’ve been using 14# mono for a 7 weight for gurglers, sliders and poppers with a mono tippet. For sinking flies I use a flouro tippet. I mostly fish the shallows for panfish. I’ve been using small tippet rings to connect the tippet. What size mono would you use for a 10 weight twisted leader. The mid section is 2 strands and the butt is 4 strands. Thanks in advance for any help. Hope this is helpful.
  2. I used Saltwater Edge. Thanks for the suggestions. I like to shop local when possible but shipping is less than a gallon of gas’s. Thanks again.
  3. Have tried what few local shops we have and even tried Cabelas. Does anyone know who carries these hooks in #6 and #4 sizes. Thanks in advance for any help.
  4. I like SHARP trebles with the barbs squashed for belly hooks on metal lip swimmers and other plugs. On metal lips I like a flag on the back instead of a hook. Most all other plugs get a single hook on the tail and a treble up front. I like minnow type plugs with 2 not three hooks. I often go up in size on the front hook (the treble) but not big enough to mess up the action or foul on the lip or body of the plug. The single tail hook has a gap between 2/3 to a bit larger than the treble it replaces. The tail hook is also sharp and the barb is squashed. My thinking is that multiple trebles do more damage to fish and fishermen and provide more leverage for hooked fish to get off. My metals carry a single hook, some with hair some without. Hope this is helpful, sorry if it is long winded.
  5. I’ve done it twice. Both caught in same ceiling fan.
  6. Don’t let Bob The Garbageman hear you use a spike, he will cut youse line. Remember the chunk is just a vehicle for the anise.
  7. It’s windy most of the time at the beach. I believe it has gotten worse as you say. I believe it is because of global warming or possibly a lasting effect of vivid.
  8. I know I’m probably going to get flack but I use the foot of the first eye for a hook keeper, always have.
  9. Thanks I know it’s late. Berkeley show is a good show. I’m coming from Pa but don’t mind the drive to the shore.
  10. With Covid at a low point are there any sports shows or fleamarkets scheduled this spring?
  11. What’s a Henway? Are they like a anew?
  12. Use scissors to cut the angle.
  13. When sandeels are present I often use the same sandeel teaser I use as dropper. Either a red gill, surf candy or Mikelson fly works well. The offset hooks that come with AVA type lures don’t last long and need constant resharpening. IMHO
  14. I’m surprised that no one mentioned “Casting Into The Light” by Janet Massiineo and “Striper” by John Cole. Both are good reads. “Striper “ deals with the previous crash of Striper stocks. It also gives an interesting description of beach haul seining. I reread this every few years.
