New Kurenai Lines

by Tucson, Az
(James)

It’s been some time since I fished my float rigs with my kurenai, mainly because it became to cumbersome to lob out. I now fish with flies primarily and use a 6lb hi-vis monofilament as my casting line. My leader is a section of 2lb vanish flourocarbon but the strength is somewhere between 6.5x and 7x tippet. I connect the two via tippet ring. I keep my casting line relatively short, at around 13-14 foot and use a 3 foot leader. This makes the line roughly 3-4 feet shorter than the kurenai (HM63R). It’s an extremely sensitive setup and works great for my still water presentations. I don’t fish bait much as it’s usually an out of the way drive to get it. Let me know if any of you fish different kurenai lines or would recommend I do something differently.

As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.


Warning:

The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
