Default Re: Sharkskin line dilemma

Hi to all,

The difference may be that in one case we are talking about fresh water and in the other case it is saltwater. A saltwater fly fisher would be doing a bunch of stripping, The salt air and sand could also have an effect. Some of the Florida sand is almost like a powder.

I agree with Mojo about the guide material. I wonder what kind of rod that fella was using. Soft guides can be damaged with normal fly lines. Early spinning rods with soft guides were cut by mono.
