Alright alot of good info. I actually was bored other day and stopped by barnes and noble to read up on your costal cutt book. I gained a fair amount of actualy useful info. All i got is an old 6/7 weight with floating, and my new 8 with rio tip. Should i be alright with one of the tips and a shock and awe with some glow flash? Looked at tides and thinking end of next week might give us perfect tides and time to give this a shot.
