On the advice of some of you on the forum, I'm planning on fishing the New River a bit downstream from Blacksburg, VA. There's supposed to be musky in there. Now, I've never done this, but I understand they're toothy critters like the pike back home. We had to use wire tips on our leaders for pike. Would someone please turn me on to a proper musky leader? Thanks.

About 4-6 inches of 40 Lb test steelon.

We use it for big bluefish in the surf

I use 2 1/2' of 60# mono and about 6 to 8" of 80# flouro.

Pay attention to everything! The closer you get to the boat keep it as deep as you can. Figure 8 it. When you have a follow change flies and get it back out quickly. They were interested but something wasn't right. Changing colors and size will often get them back after it. They like stay under the boat after they have followed the fly. Figure 8 under the boat.

Good luck!

Kyle

Thanks guys. I would never have done any of that. BTW, I've seen speedtraps all over on 460. I know there's some I haven't seen. Eggleston to Ripplemead is 10 river miles. Long day?
