Another one here for the braid to fluorocarbon leader joined by an Albright special knot. I put a tiny drop of UV cure glue on the knot just to smooth it out as it goes through the rod guides accelerating on the cast. Just spooled up a new Chronarch 150HG with some 40# power pro slick. Don’t really need 40#, but it still casts a mile even with the heavier braid. I like heavier braid just because it handles nicely and might just hang in there a little longer in the shell I frequent.
My buddy gets a lot of flounder just fishing straight nylon Monofilament. He might have 12# on. Flounder have wicked teeth if you happen to get a finger near them, but they don’t seem to be bad about cutting line in my experience.
There’s typically several different ways to skin the cat.
This 16” one came in about 15” of water from the outflow of a small marsh drain on Saturday.
I like Fluorocarbon tippet when I try for flounder with fly tackle. Flounder, in my experience, really suck in the relatively small fly patterns like this borski slider and hardly ever come off at the net. Thin wire, super sharp fly hooks like the size 4 forged carbon steel Gamakatsu SL-45 one in the photo don’t hurt things either. I don’t pause much setting the hook with flies. Get the thump and then a sharp strip set.
