Re: casting sinking lines
thanks for the info.
It sounds like I probably just need to get better at casting in general. If I have nice loops in the air the sinking line casts okay. Definitely the timing is different because the line is a lot heavier, and I haven't had much luck shooting line because of the sinking thing I mentioned. The stripping basket sounds interesting.
For interest, I would say that casting a sinking line is easier than casting my floating line with sink tips, especially when I have a decent sized streamer on the end of the sink tip. That puts a lot of weight at the end and gets kind of crazy.
