The 6wt Shenanigans

Hey y’all, Noah Miller here. I’m starting this blog to document my fishing adventures and hopefully give y’all some cool content to read and enjoy, and maybe even learn something, who knows!

I’m calling this “The 6wt Shenanigans” because well, it happens to be my favorite rod. There are a few reasons for this, but one of the biggest advantages of a 6wt is the fact that presentations are much quieter. The fly line lands softer and it’s just a lot of fun when you hook a fish. Plus casting a lighter rod in any kind of a breeze is more of a challenge, and therefore makes you a better caster overall. My current favorite 6wt is a Clutch Archipelago, the reel is a Reddington Rise 5/6 and my favorite line for it is a Scientific Anglers Mastery: Bonefish taper. As far as flies go each trip will be a little different, but the heaviest flies I use will be small lead eyes. Most of the time though I am using medium bead chain eyes. I find this gives me the perfect weight to still turn over the leader, land soft and give me the sink rate I need. And yes this blog will get fairly technical, because to be a really good fly angler you need to pay attention to detail in every aspect of it. Anyways, hope y’all enjoy it and I look forward to sharing my adventures with you!

Mechanical Misadventures

Anyone that fishes with me knows I’m a stickler when it comes to detail. Knots, flies, casting, and poling, I really put a lot of effort in to make sure I am as successful as possible on the water. T
