FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Frequently asked questions
What does Quick-shedding mean?
It means that on your first back cast 80% or more water weight is shed immediately and you are back to concentrating on where to put your fly rather than struggle with a wool sock on the end of your line. These flies are tied hollow style which looks and acts bulky without acutally being bulk. The materials chosen for these flies are less likely to wick up water weight.
What kind of hooks are Reel North's Flies tied on?
All flies are tied on Stainless Steel or Black Nickle saltwater grade hooks. I currently prefer Gamakatsu and Kona hooks.
How Durable are Reel North's Flies?
Typically you can expect to catch 10-20 predator fish on one of Reel North's Flies before it's retired. These are essentually my "Guide Flies" which have built in durability and are consistant producers. Reel North Flies were tested in Labrador for hungry pike and averaged 25-30 pike before retiring the fly. A large part of fly durablility is due to care taken when releasing your fish. I build all flies a durable as possible for predator teeth.
