Tuna Fly Rod Guides

OK, I've gotten Ken a Tuna Fly Rod Blank (15 wt.) for his birthday. The fellow that is wrapping it for me wants to know what size/type guides to put on it. Looking for your advise/recommendations.

Ladyfish,

 

A 15 wtg. fly blank is primarily a lifting and fish fighting tool that will need to sustain tremendous pressure when trying to pump a tuna at the end of the fight. In addition, with the initial strike, adequate line clearance is critical.

 

For guides I would recommend Fuji SIC's combining the NSG's with the SG fly guides in the following sizes.

 

NSG 25,16,12

 

SG 10,10,10,10,10,10,10 and an MST tip with a #10 ring.

 

Al G.
