I have the pike/musky floating on my 8wt and like the line. I've tossed some big bass bugs and flies for smallies and pike in rivers. I think I'm going to get it for my 10wt for musky fishing. Whether you should get that one or a faster sinking line depends on how deep you want to fish. The rivers/lakes I'm looking at are really weedy so I want something that will get the fly down but won't bury it in the weeds too quickly. I go back and forth between getting an intermediate, getting a floating and versileaders, or a floater and a sinking.
