I used a Black Fly which is combo/mix between a clouser and a wholly bugger.Its been my go to fly for almost everything this year. I used a hand made taper leader. I started with a mono leaders from 40lbs to 25lbs to 15lbs to 5lbs Flora Carbon. Leader lengh was about 10ft. I bought the rod when I lived in California a few years ago at a fly show in Burbank. Im going to use this same combo on Seatrout and Reds. If this out fit can catch Steelhead and Salmon , I think it can catch Seatrout/Reds as well. The blank on this rod is a Loomis Blank.At least thats what I was told. Cast well what ever is...
