Might be too late to save your delicate 8 weight. The fish in Pulaski are like hooking trains and Hopefully you hooked a few. Often having a lighter 8 pound or less tippet gives you a chance to break them off when you cannot chase them, or control them in crowded conditions. I like a heavier rod but a lighter leader gets you off the hook on the chasing. I would not want to try an break 12 pound flouro with an 8 weight!
