Tomato Stakes Anyone?

Anglers have long found a role for big, beefy fly rods in conventional tackle fishing. They apparently work like the devil on grouper, especially when they are hoisting a lead jig that weighs as much as 10,000 trout flies. “It was definitely a fly rod, an 11-to-12 weight that many anglers use for big saltwater species like permit and tarpon, mated to a single action fly reel about the size that Michigan anglers use for salmon. After that, it started to get weird.” Eric Sharp in the Detroit Free Press.
