Default Re: Line type for TYBEE ISLAND Georgia Coast fall break

Surf + Floating line = misery

Here's why, to be able to impart action to your fly and feel strikes, you need as straight a connection to the fly/hook as possible. With a floating line being tossed around and made wiggly by the surf, you'll never have a straight line to your fly.

If you're fishing one of those weird places where the surf is flat, of course this doesn't apply. You also could fish the bays on the back side of the island, and be safe with the floating line.

I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.
