Default Re: Which lines?

Ken,

Shooting heads are best suited for distance casting. Short casts can be awkward due to the "hinging" effect were head attaches to the running line (usually it's a loop to loop connection).

Certainly a regular full sink is a good choice that will do the job for you as you describe and they have caught tons of fish over the years.

The density compensated sinking lines also do a good job of staying in the "zone". They sink tip down quickly and provide a much straighter line between fly and angler than either a sink tip or full sink does. Technically that should translate into better feel for strikes and better hook sets. Personally I prefer the DC lines now when I need to fish the deeper stuff. However being the "new kid on the block" so to speak, they are more expensive. Keep an eye on Ebay, occasionally you'll find a DC line there at a reduced price.

Tight lines!

Guy
