Shooting Lines?
 
Been reading up on Stripers on the fly and came across Shooting lines. Well been looking on youtube and just other sites and really can't figure out or understanding what a shooting line does. Only information I'am getting is prices and to shot your line :confused: Can anyone give me a run down pros, cons how to put it on? Exactly what is it used for? I was thinking about getting a shooting line for this fall run for stripers.

Shooting Heads?????

I used make my own WF fly lines out of DT Fly Line and Cortland Running Fly Line.
