    Dudley is not wrong. That leader will turn over a big fly like butter. That said there are plenty of blokes using straight 20 and do just fine. Either a hand tied tapered leader or a long straight...

    That reminds me of my favorite fishing. High sun and stripers in the surf. Each wave is a magnifying glass to what lurks beneath what is hidden by the sun's glare.

    Re: Line for SLT

    I agree with Greg. I have a 490-4 SLT (best rod ever IMHO). Just began fishing the mute green version of the SA Trout and think it is fantastic.

    Re: Salt water reel preferences

    you can do worse than the Lamson Litespeed. Some of the older models are closing out at great prices. All in all I'd say one of the best looking reels on the market.
