I tie many of my own on Mustad Fly Fishing Leader: 20 lb test tapered leader ( I use Cortland) Fishing Lake trout locations - Cast over reefs / drop zones - let line sink at least 15 ft before stripping in. During July and August the Lake Trout typically will be in 30 plus feet of water - so it's imperative to have sinking line Lake trout give a tremendous fight on the fly rod / gear rod - super fun! *GEAR: ROD: Medium/ Fast action 9 ft casting rod (Okuma Fishing USA ) Reel: Casting reel with Smooth drag up to 20 pounds is great followed with 15lb "Wish" braid Mustad Hooks and a 4' to 6' tip of 10 or 12 lb flurocarbon or other mono like maxima ultragreen. LURES: Casting spoons (1/4- and 5/8-ounce) IE: Little Cleo, Delfin Alligator , Krocodile , Gibbs koho, Spinners like Micro spoons from Savage gear, crankbaits like Savage Gear 's lipped fat vibe, 3D Minnow diver ...
