Just wanted to say once again, Kiyotaki 27 YES! Soft tip, responsive, handles small to medium fish with ease and even ticks when a mosquito fish hits it. I caught this one on a size 12 kebari with black thread body and white rooster hackle. Just for dressing I put some peacock hurl behind the hackle to keep the little guys from gulping it down.

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.
