Re: Fly Line HELP!
Nail knot a section of stiff material to the end of the fly line and then seal the end with super glue or head cement. That will keep water from wicking up into the core of the line. But the use of floatant on a CLEAN line is the best advice. I stress clean because the line does accumulate a lot of gunk even from seemingly clean water.
My personal preference are double taper lines because they roll cast better and are reversible. Also they are easier to mend. And, the next time you go to Bennett or Montauk, or elsewhere try a fly that has a lot of white in it. For some reason those hatchery flsh seem to like white.
