Garfish are a nightmare on the fly. Lots of nips and plucks with few hook ups. You could try using a fly with some form of yarn in the dressing to snag their teeth.

I'd be loathed to use a 'stinger' treble as I prefer to release most of the fish I catch with a minimum amount of handling. You get enough hook-ups with a single hook to make it worthwhile and getting the takes to stick just adds to the challenge.

Agree with you there mjb , treble could be a problem if small bass or pollack about.Have you used small [size 14-16] bead heads in the salt, any good? Have done a bit of game fly but have struggled at sea mainly because of ******* weed !

Smallest I've used are size 8-10. Dog Nobblers and Cats Whiskers. I know folks have had Mullet on GRHEs with a bead head.

thx for the advice MJB.
ive decided to try SWFFing from my kayak this season and was a little confused as to what lineweight and how much backing and leader i would need and this post helped a lot.
Ive got a selection of clousers and decievers to get me started (cheers BassFly). but ive gone for a smaller 8ft 5/6 weight rod to get started as i felt this would be easier to handle on the yak.
ive got some 12lb backing line and am looking at getting a few ready made leaders. will the 12lb mono be adequate and what kind of BS do leaders come in/what would be best?
cheers

Very interesting article, Thank you. Am planning to try SWFF this coming season having been a keen spinning angler for bass over many years and so will probably be asking for advice soon. Thanks again.
