If you are anything like me your focus is on having a variety of flies in your tackle box. While having a good selection of flies is important, don’t overlook the necessity of having a quality fly line cleaner in your tackle box. A quality fly line cleaner will help your line shoot smoothly and float properly. We have tried several types and brands of fly line dressing and the best we have found is the RIO AgentX Fly Line Cleaner Kit. Find it under Accessories at www.BreamBugs.com
Here are a few reasons to use barbless hooks: better hooksets, barbs create resistance and makes it harder for the hook to penetrate, the fish are easier to release, if the line breaks its easier for the fish to shake a barbless hook loose, there is less injury to the fish and THERE IS LESS INJURY TO YOU! See our first introduction of barbless hooks at www.BreamBugs.com.
“Pounds” or “Lbs” refers to the breaking strength of the line. A line rated at 6 Lbs should not break until 6 pounds of pressure is on the line. You can catch fish larger than the “pounds” of you line. How? Set the drag on the reel to let the fish pull the line off the reel. That’s why you need Cortland Micron fly line backing on your reel.
