    Buying pink things.

    Hi guys,

    Sold my fly tying gear when I moved up North (silly I know), so I'm looking at buying a few pink things online, troutflies sell some with just a 3/0 hook, is that big enough from your experience? Otherwise anywhere you'd recommend?

    Also keen to hear what people are using for leader/tippet, fishing in Tinaroo so there's very little visibility, so I was thinking a couple meters of 60lb jinkai as leader and tippet? Big casts not required.

    Thanks,

    Nick.

    Nick, try TieNFly as they have a good range and are of good quality. I use 3/0-6/0 depending on size of fish and 40-60lb leader. I use a tapered leader (60-40-30 with a 30cm 60lb bight tippet) in clearer water and straight through 60 (1.5m) in snags and dams.

    Thanks wags, tienfly don't sell them unfortunately but found them at a pretty good price elsewhere with 3/0 hooks. My wife loves fly fishing so figure we'll chase tilapia and maybe a few barra.
