Thanks for the tip man, never heard of that rod before.
Probably more affordable for me than the T&T 12X12 = $800

Designed by some big game beach fishers. $250 new, so they should be cheap as fuck on ebay, wish I never sold mine.

This swap closed yet? I swore these swaps off but GT's are on my bucket list.
I think I want in on this one, let me know if it's still open.

You are in Maniac, you are one of my favorite tiers.

Unskunkable gets the boot, which he is fine with,
he will actually be helping me with my flys.

Shit, that's like $20+ in hooks!

Since these fish get over 100 pounds & eat bonefish, I'm thinking big bonefish patterns on a real stout but sharp hook, like a 4/0 Gami SP11 or something...what hook & what pattern are you guys using?

It's been on my bucket list for a while now to do a midget stripper and a and aa toothless lot lizard, I hear there is a place in NV where this can be arranged, for a fee of course. Anyone wanna chip in and help me get this bucket list whittled down to a shorter bucket list, which by the way is also on my bucket list.

Thanks
