Assuming you are not riffle hitching a muddler, what not would you all use to attach a larger foam skating fly?
Do you use twelve pound even on smaller skaters. I have been thinking about it, but it sounds so strange, because of my trout background.I tie mostly down eye hooks for my skaters so I run a turl knot up from the bottom. I'm using either 12 or 15# maxima so no twisting issues there. I can't imagine that a skater eater is too leader shy...
I do! I'd say I run 12 or 15# about 95% of the time.Do you use twelve pound even on smaller skaters. I have been thinking about it, but it sounds so strange, because of my trout background.
Thanks, I thought so, but wanted to make sure. I would also think the heavier line would help keep the skater riding higher in the surface due to increased tension.I do! I'd say I run 12 or 15# about 95% of the time.
A friend of mine fishes a #8 buck bug on 15# up on the Bulkley and lights them up. Even in low and clear water and mid-day sun. If it works then it should work anytime right?
I also just like being able to put the wood to a fish. Skater eaters are generally hot fish so have a nice stout leader makes it easier for me to grab the leader at the end of the fight.
I might miss out on a fish or two a season but thats a sacrifice I'm willing to make.
