Barracuda Rig Step One: The Perfection Loop

February 12, 2014
Author: Will Rice

When welded loops became common place on the terminal section of most premium fly lines, the perfection loop went from being a rather obscure knot, to one that is a must have for fly anglers of all skill levels.  For our upcoming trip to the Bahamas, we’ll be tying some of our own leaders specifically for barracuda.  Although some anglers dislike a loop-to-loop connection between their fly line and leader, we’ve found over the years, the benefits of a loop-to-loop connection far out weigh the drawbacks.

In preparation for our trip to the Andros South Lodge in the Bahamas in mid March, I’m in a constant state of research and preparation.  I haven’t been to South Andros Island in almost 10 years.  For many of our clients, this will be their first salt water fly fishing adventure – ever. As part of the planning process, I scoured the interwebs trying to find a decent video that captures some of the situations we’ll hopefully see during our six days fishing South Andros Island – tailing bonefish, waking bonefish, cruising bonefish… barracuda.  This video has a little bit of everything. I shared this with our clients and I figured the Trouts contingent would dig it as well.

Author: Will Rice

We have a lot of customers who stop into the shop before they embark on an international saltwater fly fishing adventure.  We get all kinds of gear and equipment questions as well as questions about fishing strategy and tactics.  One piece of advice we always share: 'if you are new to fishing the flats or from a boat, go out and practice casting prior to your trip.'
