Thank you all for your suggestions. I will probably go with the Airflo or Cortland in a 10 wt.
Juro - That bitter reply about my casting style was from Ryan (aka talented willie). I don't think he's got the skunk off from Sunday yet! You can absolutely post that pic of the striper - chipped tooth and all (now repaired).
Cheers again to you and Bill for letting us tag along. Watching you drag race that legal down the beach on the way back was a blast.
Do you generally nail knot the leader directly to your intermediate line? For my depth charge I have a 50# loop connector knotted to the fly line. My usual leader consists of 3ft of 35#, 3ft of 22# and handshake loop to 3ft of 16# floro tippet.
