Since Dolly Llamas fish best on a floating line, you have two main options:
- Run a 9 foot Salmon/Steelhead Leader directly off the Chucker. For trout fishing go with a 12lb and for coho go with a 16lb. A salmon leader (unlike a trout leader) is thicker and has a stiffer butt section that helps smooth out the casting of big flies.
- Add a 10 Foot Medium MOW Tip in Full Floating to the end of the Chucker and then the salmon/steelhead leader. The MOW Tip will smooth out the cast and and add a little more mass to the head of the line.
Whichever way you decide to go, a switch rod is terrific way to fish both salmon and trout in Alaska.
