Default Re: casting sinking lines

I find sinking-tiip lines easier to cast than floating lines. Sinking tips cut through the wind.

Your sinking line might be tangling so much because it's a mono-core line. I buy only low-memory lines. Before I fish, however, I pull most of the line off the reel then gently pull out the coils. After I finish fishing I cut off my fly, make the longest cast I can, then reel the line in. This takes out some of the line twist.

As for stripping baskets, I've tried many. My favorite by far is the Orvis. It has nine cones which helps reduce tangling. True it costs about $60.00, but in my opinion it's worth it.
