Default Spanish & Blues !

On this past Monday, got into some nice spanish mackerel and bluefish on the flyrod. I was fishing various grass flats in the sound towards Ft. Pickens. A chartreuse size 2 popper on a 8 wt. rod was the ticket.

Default Tippet?

Great fun! - what sort of tippet did you use for those toothy critters?

The popper ain't pretty ! Was using a 40lb. mono leader tied to the popper on a loop knot. The leader was a 9ft. tapered to a 15 lb. tippet.
