Re: Line for my 8wt?

Re: Line for my 8wt?

Partial to the airflos for no other reason than that they're indestructible. Haven't had to replace one yet. Got one that's going on 3+ years.

Re: Danvise Yay or Nay?

Used one for years. It was fine. Still have it. Only issue I had was that it was hard to get it to hold onto hooks under heavy tension, like spinning deer hair, and I'd rather have a pedestal than a clamp (yes, you can find pedestals for the Danvise, but still...). Dynaking I have now is mo betta.

Re: Educate me

I actually have an OF 8SA and a TFO TiCr 12 wt that was my first tarpon outfit (it's third string now--I became a gear ho along the way). The OF is a solid reel, but a heavy mother. I have a TiCr in an 8wt that I actually really like, but I do not like my TFO TiCr in the 12. Heavy rod, brutally stif...

Re: When I grow up....

I didn't miss any point (I rarely do ). Evan, your statement that "distance is SO over-rated" is a) wrong, and b) ironic, considering your admitted lack of flats fishing experience in Florida. There are tons of sightfishing situations where a long accurate cast means the difference between...
