    Hey BD, headed to SCI for a chance to get on those Cows. We’ll be flying the kite but wondering how to rig the leader using the flying fish. Also, how heavy do you guys recommend I use for braid along with the fluorocarbon leader? Thank you in advance for your input. Tight lines!

    Thanks Robert, how heavy would you go on the braid backing? Also, how long of a leader would you recommend?

    130 or 150 braid tied directly to heavy duty clip then make your 400lb mono 4 or 5 feet with a swivel on top

    Make sure to bridle your bait. If you get lucky and get some life flying fish it will keep it alive alot longer then putting a hook threw it
