When I moved to NC I wasn't sure what I might find. One unexpected was very large Redfish in the Neuse River and Pamlico Sound. One of the popular methods is spin rods with a large popping cork about 3' ahead of a plastic bait. A guide, Gary Dubiel started fly fishing them with a similar rig. I tried a bunch of combinations and settled on a Beulah 10/11 Switch with a heavy Ambush line. The terminal end was a big Bob's Banger saltwater popper with a 3' 20# dropper to a 6" flatwing streamer. 80' was no problem and was adequate distance, but longer cast was a matter of air resistance catching up. Next season I may try some of the longer rods.
