i do use a sink tip, not sure they weight or anything. i think it was a 30-40$ line by S.A. also i use 5x because thats the highest lb i have, guess ill go to the shop and buy some 1-3x or so too then i can try some still water stuff.
jimmie-- your saying let it get down stream from me and let it act like its swimming in the current letting it go further down slowly? to do this would i need a streamer that imitates a fish and not a leech? (i think thats what a wooly bugger is no?)
ive only been fishing the provo river right now which is a brown trout river. i assume i should probably go buy some brown trout patterns. what els would be a good idea?
