Re: Getting into Lead Core fishing

I use 18 lb lead core like everyone but I use a moocher fly reel, inexpensive and holds all 10 colors with a fast reel in because of the larger size - any 9 foot fly rod, I use ugly stiks

Re: Getting into Lead Core fishing

Cool! Lot's of good advice! Never occured to me to use a fly rod...Duh... makes perfect sense.
Is there much difference between different lead line manufactures?

Good advice ~ THANKS!

Re: Getting into Lead Core fishing

Kittery Trading Post sells a martin multiplier fly reel. I have that set up with backing, 10 colors of 12 lb leadcore, and a leader. Put it on a 7 weight or so fly rod. When I reline it I will probably go with only 5 colors leadcore. Its a nice setup.
