I intend to fly fish for snapper and schoolies. I'm not really going to be chasing bigger fish but I'm going to be using a 9wt rod, reel and line just in case I get lucky or catch the bug to chase the bigger girls with flies. I know for smaller fish my tackle isn't critical but for larger fish it would be.
So for the bigger girls up to around 20lbs and larger blues:
Which is preferred a fly line with loop connections for fly line without?
I've used a nailless nail knot and albright knot for freshwater bass and trout but I'm not sure those knots would get the job done. If I have to use a fly line without loop connection which knot would be best for connecting my leader?
Are sink tips a good idea and if so when and with what should they be used?
If I want to use a teaser, do I tie a dropper loop in my leader and can I tie the flies in tandem as I might with flies while trout fishing?
How necessary is a large arbor reel?
