The famous nocturnal Hex hatch of the Midwest (and a few other lucky locations) stirs to the surface mythically large brown trout that only touch streamers for the rest of the year.
Hey guys, I just loaded up a new reel with a sink tip type 6 line. I got this for dredging the depths of a local lake which holds bigger perch and trout than I have been catching, and I will be fishing it with dumbbell-eyed flies like KBFs and Woolly Buggers (maybe some nymphs too). What type and length of leader would be appropriate for fishing this rig? The lake is 38 feet deep at the deepest, and I would like to try to get down to perhaps 15 feet if possible to see if there are bigger fish hiding in the depths.
Any recommendations from the gang would be most appreciated!
