Two hand fly lines for the salt
Ajefferslyon posted a topic in Fly FishingCurrently, the best way to get into TH saltwater fishing is to check out the topic: "Two hand rods for the salt" and pick up a Mike Oliver, spey, carp, or (god forbid) a switch rod. Hopefully the next step is to then check out this new topic "Two hand fly lines for the salt" for info on line selection, customization, tips, taper theories, etc. (this topic will inevitably have to include casting styles too I think) I personally went though 20+ different lines over the last 10 years trying to get my G. Loomis 12/13 11'3" to launch 130ft casts like I imagined it would. In this age of information, I couldn't believe that I was forced to figure it out via trial and error – and I'm still figuring it out. Long story short, I know we will all be better TH fisherman if we share what we know on the lines we use. Thank you!
I have a crazy idea: use a spinning rod for fly casting
Ajefferslyon posted a topic in Fly FishingHere are the idea ingredients: I love two handed fly rods & want more. Problem: they are expensive. I know there are alot of spinning/surf casting rods out there that are cheap. Fly rods are basically rated for the weight of the line they can throw. Spin rods are rated for the weight of the lure they can throw. Both are bendy graphite poles. Why couldn't I get a 12 foot surf casting rod rated for 1.5oz plugs and then RIP long casts with 700 grain scandi heads? Yes the butt would be too long. Yes the guides would be big. But saving $700 is a big factor too. Would love to hear your thoughts.
