    Hey guys, with the water starting to warm a bit when will you start getting out there???? Winter has got me crazy and there is no more space left in my flybox after the rainy fly tying days.

    Hey guys, spent some time on the reef yesterday and noticed a lot of spotties, even had a chase or two. This got me excited and decided to chase them and see if i could get one.

    Only after the session it hit me, Is my 10wt ok for these sharks.

    My question, do you guys think my 10 wt is ok for these smaller gullies?

    Hi,
    #10 w should be fine. I have landed some on my 10 ft Sage #7 weight. The difficult bit was getting them those last few meters over the lip onto the sand. I think you should ask the question: "Is my reel good enough"? I fish Abel reels and it is normally fine, but once I had to replace the bearings after a big one smoked me!

    Hey there Niel , thanks for the reply . Went this evening with my own baitfish pattern and managed to hook one. WOW what a fight .The only thing is the backing got knotted up and would not let go. Not to long and "Bye Bye fly line", my brand new cold salt. but that is fishing. Time to beg borrow and steal for new line hahahaha

    i will be back soon to try again.
