Re: Drifting in boat with fly rod.
I like the full sinking line myself, and I would also recommend a drift sock (sea anchor).
These are very useful to slow your drift when the wind is up.
Store-bought come in different sizes, depending on the size of your boat.
For my canoe I have a home-made one from a 5 gal bucket.
I replaced the handle/bale with line that is attached in 4 'corners'
This holds the bucket 'open' better than the 2 point connection you'd have if you just use the handle.
Sorry.....not a good description
here's a picture of a store-bought
