    Default SM Yellows and snapping tippets

    For those of you, who cannot land a 3kg SM on 6 pound tippets.

    big difference fighting fish in current with obstructions like rocks, weed etc as opposed to open water. Wonder if the tarpon survived?

    From the comments ... "They decided before trying to catch it that they would take the fish, I believe."

    Y'know Korrie ... I often wonder how someone as intelligent and creative at fly tying as you clearly are, can come up with some of the things you say ... especially about a fish (Yellowfish) you supposedly love to catch.
