  1. Nice collection of outfits! Though they are on different weight outfits, I’d like to hear mre about how the different lines work on your trip. I’ve always used SA Bonefish but have been thinking about others like the Teenys. BTW, I love Helios 8-9 reels. Really a geat deal for the price IMO.

    Best of luck on your trip! Looking forward to readiing about it here or on Dan Blanton.


  2. Hey Glenn… I look forward to seeing how the different lines work myself! The only one I’ve really used is the SA line. I may put the CLA 5 with the Flip Pallot on the TFO Clouser rod… it seems made to shoot heavy lines and over-lining it may work well. We’ll see.

    That Helios is a great deal, I agree. Been a good reel for me.
