So year earlier I wrote a post about owning a 4wt and 8wt fly rod, but I decided to give my 8wt to my friend since he really only goes after silvers, he doesn't like the crowds that the king salmon bring.
So Ive figured out what I was going to get as my new set up and I wanted to run it by you guys, I figure that the more input I get the more info ill know and maybe change my decision.
Reel: Okuma Helios 8/9
Rod: TFO Lefty Kreh Professional Series Fly Rod 9wt
Backing: Dacron - White 30# 100Yd
Line: Scientific Angler Professional Series - Full Sinking - Type VI - WF9S
Leader: Scientific Angler Fluorocarbon Leader 9' Freshwater/Saltwater 20#
So yeah! Tell me what you guys think, or what you think would be a greater substitute! I'm thinking that with this set up I can handle King salmon in the parks highway system and ship creek area As well as silvers in general. Also, a second question is there any place where you can catch and release Kings using barbless flies? Or once you catch your king for the day you cant fish at all?
