I've been considering trying my luck on the surf. I've read much in the way of equipment etc. I have everything in order with the exception of information overload on the line/leader set-up. The surf zone that I would be looking at can get pretty heavy at times, with a strong cross current. I would assume that a heavy sinking line would be in order. I've read that the following is a decent set-up for getting the fly down, and keeping it down in the surf zone. 30lb dacron backing/120ft of 25lb berkly iron silk for a running line and 24ft (appx) of Cortland LC-13 for a shooting head. (Length cut and test cast for desired results). I'm new to this shooting head, sink line technique. My rod is a 9ft 6wt. Am I in the ballpark, or is there something else that I should consider. Target species is Barred Perch and flatties.
