Bluewater

Most of the Bluewater articles are centered around Billfish and they could very well be justified. Having never caught a Billfish on a fly I can only wonder and dream. What I have found is that Dorado can offer a lot of Bluewater excitement for an angler with average saltwater experience and skills. They can be successfully fought and landed on modern 10wt rods that are easy to cast and standard equipment in many angler's fly rod inventory. Any angler with a good 10wt Stripper or Tarpon rod is equipped to tackle Dorado on the fly. My three favorite rods for Dorado are the Cam Sigler 10wt, the Albright XX Lou Tabery designed 10wt rod and the Beulah Bluewater 10/11. All three rods will easily handle 50+ pound fish.
