> Well, I am back to pick your brains again. i have taken the advice I have recieved in teh past and put it to good use. I have actually caught more fish. Lehngthing my leader changing my fly selection, and trying my hand at nymph fishing.
I heard somewhere that the smallest fly you should use is 4 times the tippet size (ex. 5X tippet - size 20 fly). I've been using 6X for the Hootch and haven't had a fish break off yet. But then again I mainly use 5X at Dukes and have had a couple break off.
I think stripping speed is whatever the fish like.
