  7. Ok, so plan to target some big carp this summer from a relatively narrow fast flowing section of river. iv got 2 reels, one loaded with rio 6wf line (iv been using this for redfin) iv got 6lb leader on this also flurocarbon. and the other reel is a slightly larger reel loaded with rio wf8f/i with a clear tip to the fly line. then i have a 15lb flurocarbon leader off of this.Plan to use this for salmon. Rods , i have 2 , both 4 pce, one is a 6wt the other is an 8wt. The rods go with there matched weight line (see above) so my question is , for the big carp what set up would be better ? do i risk spooking the carp with heavier lines etc ?

  9. Best fly line.

    For saltwater.....im interested in getting the distance.
  10. Best fly line.

    In a you tube video i watched it was suggesting the angler potentially would get more distance casting with the in touch, as there is no stretch, therefore not losing any transferred power in the cast.

    Ok so after recently getting back into fly fishing iv been fishing some small ponds that i know hold some big redfin (40cm plus fish) iv seen them. I have seen people get them on lures like eco gear in a dark striped pattern and the lures rattle ....i want to try catch the redfin on fly , have tried alot of flies lately, with no success, varied retrieves and still nothing. I can cast fine and confident in my technique , and i can get good distance. the flies i have been using vary iv tried beaded head nymphs , wooly buggers in green and black....im wondering if my flies are too small ? iv been using size 10 and 12 hook flies.....the more i think about it the more im thinking the fly is too small. Anyone got any tips and advice for fly fishing redfin ? any pics of good flies for redfin ? hook size ? style of retrieve ? cheers !
