    OH SORRY, I FORGOT TO MENTION THAT. IVE USED 1/3, 1/4 AND 1 ONCE. I USE THE SMALLER WIEGHTS WHEN ITS CALM AND THE FISH ARE ON THE SURFACE. I TRY TO RESERVE THE HEAVY WIEGHTS WHEN ITS CHOPPY OR THE FISH ARE DEEP.

    If you will use a fly tying bobbin and heavy flat waxed or kevlar thread you can tie the witches very quickly and easily. I use pliobond to finish off the heads. I prefer 1/4 oz and 1/2 oz. heads for the yellowfin tuna. for the bluefins I like to use the 1 oz. heads and the 3 oz. heads. If you need any head s I manufacture all the above weights and colors.

    I'll tell you what. I've tied a few but by far the best we've used is the squid-witches Becky has tied. They are awesome. Ask Bill (HIT N RUN) about them and he'll tell you that's all he pulls.

    BMAIL Becky and she'll set you up with her system.

    I am just kidding, but a good friend of mine who is one of the best mates ever in Hatteras, I asked him once, why his witches worked so good, and he told me his secret.

    Mint dental floss.

    I think eric uses what ever string he has and seals it with zap-a-gap thick formula. but be careful not to get any glue on the hair.
