My name is Mark Oberg
I do not use any tippet and use strait 10 pound leader, they may bust off any nice taperd leader. They will take anything they are not fussy, only in the presentation of a big ugly nimp. dark green or light brown work best for me. I use at least a number 4 hook. I have caught them with brown feathers just tide to a hook. I think I am in the 30rdy's this last two month's.
