fly fishing for stripers

Recommended Posts

What kind of leaders and tippets are you guys using?  I have an 8 wt. and do freshwater striper fishing only.  An 8 wt. will work, right?

For leader and tippet I was just thinking about attaching straight 20 lb. flouro. but just wanted to get ya'll input as well.

Thanks guys.

Hey Bream Master, 8wt might be a little on the small size for stripers. Atleast up here in NH in the ocean it would be. Im not saying you couldnt do it. I personally use a 10wt flyrod for my stripers and an 8wt for my lm bass fishing. The 20 lb flouro leader sounds fine but you also might want to think about adding a small length of wire leader also. Up here we have stripers mixed in with Bluefish that have teeth that can easily go through 20lb flouro. Hope this helps.
