Loomis GL3 Mega Taper 12/13 and Teeny 450. I find this has plenty of backbone yet still reasonably comfortable for conventional casting. Grant Hartman down at Baja Anglers takes billfish up to 200 lb on the same outfit. I stuck with Sea Habit bucktail in the Flying Fish pattern - there were a lot of "naturals" zipping around out there and it was a case of match the hatch.
Hey just a minute, why didn't I think of this earlier? Maybe this is the one case in saltwater fishing which you can genuinely call "fly fishing"?
So, John, your next challenge is to come up with a "dry" version of the flying fish - both Dun and Spinner of course
