There is too much water drag on 50lb Micron, try 45lb Gudebrod SSt GsP braid.
Getting long lengths of 50 micron out on BFT's is a step into disaster. Max

Mostly little white Leftys Deceivers. Mind you there are other things these days, some of the flies made from SilliSkin look pretty realistic. Most of the tuna I caught were longtails, but I guess the same thing applies. Max
