Default Re: Sharkskin Line + skin = pain

Yeah I fish warmwater almost exclusively so I am constantly stripping with streamers and other moving flies. Like I said, I actually have another groove in my middle finger now from the line constantly running through it. I switched the line position on this finger the other day to avoid making it deeper and ended up wearing down almost to blood at a different spot. The problem is that you don't really notice it while its wearing away at you, only after you stop fishing. I think a lot of it is reeling in all my line when I move spots and guiding it into the reel spool with my fingers.
