    Kiyotaki for Trout

    The past couple of days I've been fishing for stocker trout with the Kiyotaki 18 just to see how it performs with a little bigger fish and I have to report it works great. It handles casting a 1/80th...

    If I was down to one fly I think it would be a black and grizzly woolly bugger in size 8. I've caught a lot of bass up to 20 inches long as well as many nice bluegills with it.
