Fly lines should be tropical due to the warm water conditions and air temperature. Tropical WF Floating Line and Intermediate Clear Tip lines work the best. The typical leader set-up is 8-9 ft of straight 50-pound test monofilament followed by 6-12 inched of 40-50 pound test wire bite tippet. Strong leaders are required to help prevent accidental break- offs in the water-grass and lilly pads.
