Fly Fishing for Grouper: Going Real Deep

World record seeker Dave Chermanski uses a combination of special gear — including braided lead core line — to reach fish that are 30 to 50 feet beneath the surface. “His engineer’s curiosity led him to refine his outfits: heavy rods, lead-filled, shooting-head fly lines and his own glow-in-the-dark flies. And Chermanski targets the fish when they move from their deep-water rock caves and ledges to relatively shallow grounds where they hide in sea grasses.” Don Wilson in the Orlando (Florida) Sentinel.
