Fishing guide Dave Allbaugh of Mundy’s Corner, Pennsylvania likes wet flies. A lot. In this morning’s Pittsburgh Post-Gazette he offers John Hayes a few reasons why everyone should add wet fly techniques to their repertoire.
“Allbaugh uses an intermediate sinking line and a 9-foot leader that includes a 20-22 inch tippet. Two 4-6 inch droppers are tied to the leader using heavy 26-pound line. ‘That’s pretty heavy stuff,’ he said, ‘but the stiffness in those droppers keeps the flies from twisting around the terminal part of the leader.'”
