And it saves kayakers from almost capsizing too! HA!

A fly I tied with two number 8 hooks. Just like my other ties except I wired them together. No comparison between this and say Fishidiots but hey, I tried.

Ha Paco brings up a funny story. Him and I were fishing one day and I got hung up real bad in this tree that was right in the middle of the creek and the whole was like 10 feet deep. I couldn't even remotely get my fly off. The leader actually wrapped around a limb and then buried the hook point in the branch. I was seriously just getting ready to take my waders off to go for a swim and thankfully a couple kayakers come by. The branch that I got caught on was only like 6 inches under the water so they could get it real easy or at least I thought. The guy that got it for me nearly rolled his kayak over getting it. After this and then eventually breaking a line I finally incorporated the breakpoint and it has saved me at least a half dozen times or better.

I agree with TD. Implement the break point. I have gotten hung up a couple times while fishing with TD and Paco and that's before I did the break point and my fly line took the blow.

I will definately be using that. If i lost a brand new $80 fly line, I'd be beyond mad at myself.

It sucks loosing a fly especially 1 that's "greasy" and has caught musky before. But it still better than trashing a fly line.

I was lucky enough to only loose a couple feet of the running line but I have seen people lose way more than just the first couple feet.

How do you guys store your bigger flies? I don't have a big enough fly box that will fit the longer flies

I use a Artbin box with foam. The Box is larger than umpqua and cliff boxes but 25 dollars cheaper

I have a couple Walmart Plano boxes. I am not a fan. Two reasons 1. flies get clumped together. 2. Bulk if you have more than one box. All prefence

I got a bunch of Plano type boxes at basspro. You can use art in boxes and other cases. I think orvis makes a big box too. I've found either way as long as you can get them to the stream what's it matter. Ne'er had to worry about the flies tangling up on each other

I got out to the Susquehanna for the first time with my 10 weight today. I caught the skunk as I expected but did have some action.
The fly I was using was a maribou and bucktail base with flashabou. The third or fourth cast I threw it out to a break in the surface which I presume was a rock. Right as the fly went by the rock I saw a biggish splash were my fly would have been. I attempted setting the hook but it was too late. I had fun and learned alot even though I went fishless. Pumped for spring now though.
