Been there, done that...I use wire up here if I'm targeting blues, but it's not stealthy enough for stripers, snook, etc. So I tend to lose a few flies if the blues are active when I'm after other species...maybe I'll try a 30-50 lb Mirage fluoro bite tippet sometime to see if it holds up to the blues without spooking the less toothy critters...
