Re: Im hooked..
Welcome to the forum and the addiction! A weight forward floating line is a good all around line for many fishing applications.
Of course, it depends on what type of fishing you're doing. Sinking lines have their uses as well, depending on depth, current, flies, and target species.
Generally, when you're starting out, letting the rod load when you cast is a challenge. To help with that, you might consider a line like the Rio Grande. In a 5-wt. weight forward configuration, it actually has the weight of a 5 1/2 or 6-wt. This might help you "feel" the rod load a bit better. If you have a fast action rod, the extra weight can help your cast and be a bit more forgiving at the same time.
I know what you mean. Since I took up fly fishing, I rarely use my spinning gear.
