Default Re: DEEP and FAST nymph rigs?

Have you considered using a weighted fly line ?
There are several ways this can be accomplished, if it maybe
of interest.

1. Buy a weighted line at your local fly shop. Only drawback
is that you better off having a second spool for your reel
so you can have a weighted on one floating on the other.

2. Buy a simple add-on weighted line. They come in a packet &
attach via a loop to the end of your floating line. Easy on,
easy off. The also come in various sink rates.

I also have had that problem of fast current & not enough
weight to get the fly down to the fish. I opted for the two
spools. Much easier to take both out on the water & than a
simple switch gives me more options.
