Do you guys use weight forward for throwing say frogs and other poppers or what do you typically use? I'm pretty new to fly fishing, but I've been fishing since I was 6.
And to all the Vets out there.
Of course, double tapered line is pretty old school and is rarely used. Get a line with a short head so it's easy to cast large flies, like Rio outbound or Rio pike line. Scientific anglers probably makes something similar/cheaper.
