Default Re: Sticky Fly Line

I'm not saying this is your problem but probably worth investigating. I've bought a new line before that needed to be cleaned out of the box. Also some waters seem to foul a line more quickly then others. I'd give it a good wash with warm soapy water and maybe treat it with fly line dressing then give it a test run. Sometimes that can make a world of difference.

I've found that some rivers or still waters require line cleaning after each use.
