Default Re: Sharkskin

Did purchase my 3wt SharkSkin last Christmas and tried on small stream against sensitive fish and say it does do the job quite right in my situation that I needed to revive my old Orvis mid action fly rod to act like the latest.

Strength:
- short-mid range cast without slowing down much helps turn over my long senstive leader between 18-22 feet with midges
- high floating helps very smooth mending and rollcast

Weakness:
- water sprays a lot towards where you cast at, if you don't false cast much
- line sits nicely high on surface film, but easily trapped into fast current and sinks faster than regular line (I find it useful for wet fly tactics though
