WHAT LB test do you all use for leaders when fishing for stripers/ blues? i normally use 40lb seagar for the surf but im not surf if that will work for my fly fishing?


anyone have any experience or knowledge of elkhorn rod and reels?



Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.

Leader or tippet? All my leaders consist of 5ft 50lb clear mono- 2 1/2 ft 40lb clear mono-2 1/2 ft of tippet, tippet normally 16lb fluoro, may drop down to 10lb tippet if Albie fishing. Butt end nail knotted and cemented to fly line, use small loop to loop connection for fast change of tippet. Unless it shows visual damage leader or at least the butt section might stay all season, just tippet changes. Imo nail knot is the only way to attach leader to flyline, turns over much better than a bulky loop connection.
