Im using a 15 ft mono leader ending with 10 lb maxima 99 percent of the time. a couple times I have tied on 8lb flouro, but thats only accounted for one of my 3 dry line fish this winter.Just curious. I've been pounding the water when I can and haven't done much over the past month except leave a half dozen flies wedged in the rocks. Water in the Clack is as clear as I ever seen and I've started wondering if 12# Maxima is too much. So Matt, what's your tippet?
Adrian is going to be so jealous. Getting a winter fish on a waker has been his winter goal. If you're out there Adrian, let us know. Have you had a surface taker during this false winter we've been having?
Actually, the guys who are likely the most jealous are folks from the upper midwest to the east coast - I'm guessing that the winter of 14-15 is going to be impossible to forget for those folks. And here we are in T-shirts fishing dry flies.
