Re: Need help picking sinking fly line
The depth you're fishing will determine which lines you'll get. In fact, start saving and get most of them. I'm not yanking your chain, especially if you fish lakes or reservoir's that are in the 15' to 40'+ deep range.
Lake fishing you'll see times when you'll want a intermediate, type II,III V, and a VII. And they can be all in the same day. I use a II and VII a lot. There's a lot of new lines out by Rio, Airflo, SA and Cortland special for sinking.
A 4'-6' leader of straight fluro will do the trick at the end of your line.
