    I Didn't realise you're a KZN boy. I am too, originally - Zinkwazi was where i grew up.

    In my day we were Bananna Boys. I was Durban and Pietermaritzburg. Mainly Durban.

    Liked fishing North Zululand Coast or wherever there was water to fish. That was way back in the 60's. Jax

    that fly with a few colour tweaks would kill our tuna offshore!

    i like the red hook idea as well. bought a few yonks ago and was wondering what to tie up with them...will churn out a few of these in the next while and report back on what succumbs to it.

    have some time off in April so will take my boat out with a fly rod and see what i can find out there. have a few target species i know quite well that i'd like to get on fly.

    i watched a kingfish (yellowtail) dvd off new zealand a while back and i must say i was bowled over! serious big fish and easy to catch in certain areas and at certain times of the year i'm sure...

    you'd need a 20wt to deal with those brutes in that area...

    Hi there...

    The red hook will work, but my suggestion is not to tie on these as they rust very easily. My concern was that the rust would weaken the hook, so I refrain from using them.

    ...Unless of course you plan on using these flies as a disposable version.

    Hi Sudesh; You are quite right to point out that the Hooks will tend to rust.

    We are aware of this and religiously wash not only our reels and lines in Fresh water after each outing, But our Flies as well and so far so good. Only time will tell.Or Kingis that smoke you will negate the Rust factor. Have Fun. Jax
