So I know its -really- far of but I like to plan for things well ahead of time, so I have time to change things if they needed to be made.
Now onto my idea!
So I have a TFO 10wt and an Okuma Helios 9/10 reel.
I want to go fishing for reds on the russian/kenai confluence and last time I was pretty much unsuccessful mainly because I didn't realize just how fast the current was and how hard it is to get a lure down fast enough. I saw the reds right there. and my fly was about..a foot or so over them (even with multiple splitshot on the line), needless to say I didn't even get a hook up.
So I was thinking about using a Rio T-11 or T-17 and attach about 4 feet of leader then fly. Does this sound like a good plan?
What kind of leader/lines would you use ?
I'm also considering trying for kings in willow. would this set up also work in that situation? I know its a completely different river but I am thinking that it would work. since there is a current and all. What do you think?
