Amago, Iwana and horsehair line
by Chris Schatte
Chris, just returned from my recent trip. I used the horse hair lines for my Amago and Iwana rods exclusively with great success. It was slightly windy, but the air current was upstream so all I had to do was raise my rod, let the gust dry my fly and then slowly gently drift back to the water. Caught many fish using the air and water currents. Had an amazing few days. Thank you!

As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.
The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
