Re: What line for float tubing?
We use floating- mainly for nymphing if no top water action.
Intermediate- Cortland Clear Camo for shallows.
Type II, III, V and VII. In d/c and the cheaper Cortland Wet Cell. I like the belly that Wet Cell gives you. Keeps your fly above the weeds in 15' and less waters.
Type VII is used with chironomids and nymphs too. If the water depth is 30', I strip off that much line. Cast it out, have patience and let it sink so it's straight down below you. Slowly bring it in using a figure 8 strip and pause. And hold on when the fish hit.
Different sinking lines for different depths of fishing. We fish in water anywhere from 15' to 50' deep. Just have to find out what depth the fish are feeding at and use the appropriate line. Your sink tip should be good to 15'-20'. A 6 ips you have a fast sinking line. Mores for river fishing.
Life is not like a bowl of cherries. It's more like a jar of ghost peppers. What you eat today might burn your ass tomorrow...
