How important is it to quickly present the fly to saltwater fish?
Capt. Joel Dickey: It is very important to get a presentation to a saltwater fish as quickly as possible. Saltwater fish in most circumstances are on the move so the quicker the better. Minimizing false casts is key.

Bill Gallogly asks: I own a 15′, 10wt, 5 piece T&T. I have been casting a Rio Intouch Longhead Spey 9/10 765 gr. Is there a better line to turn over a heavy tip (t-14) and big intruder with dumbbell eyes? Am I looking for a heavier, longer skagit or something else? Fishing the Skeena and its tributaries. Many thanks!
I own a T&T 1307. Puchased the rod new about ten years ago. Clearly, an amazing rod. Now there are may new lines on the market. Could you give me suggestions as to line weight for the Nextcast Zone, the Airflow Rage and any other new line on the market you really like. I swing flies for Steelhead on the Klickitat, Grande Ronde, Deschutes and the Clearwater. Also planning to start “skating” dries again. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thank You, Gary
