looking for line!
I have a date w/ some B.F.T. an am looking for some 50lb micron, does anyone know where I might be able to get some, need to fill a couple of B.Pate reels

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

MAXG, what are you using for flys , I we will be chumming BUTTERFISH an IVE got a couple doz of theses.

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
