I'm planning on only using a fly rod for my week long trip to the Kenai. I prefer to strip, rather than flip or bait. I know I need a weighted fly......but how much weight does it need to have?? I understand I could always put weight on the line, I would just prefer not to. Any help would be much appreciated!
It all depends on current, I've fished a tequila Flash with a 4/0 or 5/0 hook with no weight before in the pockets, and with an egg sinker for the main part of the river...but it all depends on conditions.
