Re: SA's Sharkskin lines

I don't own them but I've heard that you need some kind of protection on your hands when stripping it in. The texture of the coating is kinda rough on your hands.

Re: outfit for trout fishing

Is that the only improvement either outfit needs? Or is that the improvement from upgrading to the hobbs creek over the dogwood canyon?

Re: Bass Pro White River Fly Shop Bass Taper Fly Line?

I have it on my 8wt tfo right now. Its ok, its not real slick though. When it gets wet it doesn't shoot real well. Does better when casting in the back yard practicing.
