Why would you want to do that?! Having a sinking line that stands in for a "running line" would make mending impossible and shooting extra line at the end of a cast difficult at best.

Modern shooting/running line which has historically been thin monofilament and didn't break the water tension (theoretically) is now being made hollow so that it will float even better.
