I am looking for some advice for mackerel on the fly. I have gathered little info from various tackle shops down here in BC.
I have attached an Image of the flies that were recomended by local shops.
I am planning on bringing my 5/6wt so I can use it for both mackerel and trout.
I am thinking of using x7 and x6 tapered leaders, would this be too light for the mackerel?
My location will be in Cape Breton, most likely fishing from the Port Hawkesbury or Mulgrave Wharf
The following flies were recomended
- Minnow Imitation
- Prawn Imitation
- Shrimp Imitation
- Epoxy Salmon Fry
- Anything that has alot of sparkle & shine..
