Salty Saturdays - Snapper on fly

NZ Snapper on fly using an 8 weight Lamson Speedster reel combined with the #8 Meridian rod from Scott Fly rods, just off Whangaparoa Peninsula. Fished in about 15 meters of water with a sink tip flyline and a 12ft hand tied tapered leader and the fly is a 4 inch clouser style pattern and works a treat in getting you in the strike zone. More often than not Snapper will compete for a feed and race eachother up to intercept your fly before the others gets it - This was a spectacular fish to hook up to and land... These bigger ones don't come very often and will usually hang further back than their smaller cuzzies...
