May I suggest a rather large black or olive Woolley Bugger and a fast sink polyleader.

You may open Pandoras box and catch some cracking Brownies on that outfit, without being over gunned :)
Ok, I admit it, I quite like this salmon fishing lark....

to be honest Rob, my next trick will be to add some 25lb nylon & a wire tippet and head down the duck pond after pike....   :wink
