Shooting Head Definition

I can't go with the 'Lego version' at all. What about all those interchangeable tips on modern Spey type lines, those are Lego lines too. I just don't think that being interchangeable is the defining feature of shooting heads. I had a go at defining them but there it becomes too unwieldy because the...

Two Handed Surf Rods

The other issue with 2 handers in the surf is handling all that running line. Its fine to make 150 foot casts but then you retrieve 90 feet of it and have to manage that line. Its a friggin nightmare. Easy when its just swinging flies across the current, a few strips , some neat coils and boom again...

Changing student's style

In a full day session I'll take breaks from casting and fill those breaks with sessions on retrieves, striking, line management and how to apply pressure to a fish in different situations. All of this of course is without that key ingredient, the fish. There's nothing quite like going fishing to tea...

Changing student's style

I think the problem with style, and why its important to understand it and to touch on it in teaching, is that a lot of people think that they HAVE to cast a certain way. They may have picked this up from a book or from watching a video or even from an instructor, and rather than understand the prin...

Sailfish leader and hook set ups

I've seen them whack resin heads over and over - but what a soft head does is collapse when the fish bites down on it exposing the hooks better. The shape of Cam's popper heads leaves a lot of hook exposed. A great source is www.saltwaterflies.com great service and good products. Just make sure your...

Sailfish leader and hook set ups

80lb between hooks. Personally I prefer a sub-surface presentation but I do know that the Rompin fish seem to prefer a popping head - no doubt the Cam Sigler heads are the best. With a tube fly and a cam Sigler head the hooks are well back so short takes are well taken care of.

Sailfish leader and hook set ups

Firstly my preference is tube flies and for sails I like to use smaller hooks, a 4/0 SL12 on the front and a 4/o Gamakatsu Octopus on the back - see pic. I join them using snells, so I snell on the back hook, then the front hook with about an inch between them. Because you probably won't be fishing ...
