You have completely lost me on the types.... I have floating fly line. I have a furled leader on both my reels. (even the broke one) I was using a flourocarbon
tippet, but know it was not necessary to do so, but it does make it sink faster. Now for a beginner it is okay to use something besides a floating line? I do not know if I can get another spool for my reel. Here is my reel at Cabelas....
Cabela's -- Ross Reels Pre-Spooled Flystart Reels
I took the tapered leader off that came with it, and bought a furled leader from someone I know who makes them. He made me a 4ft leader for it. I thought a 6ft leader might be better. Someone said the 4ft would be easier to cast, and for warm water fishing, a longer leader was not needed.
