Default Re: Sharkskin

I've had a Sharkskin line for a couple years now in 4 wt and just got around to really fishing it yesterday. After a few hours of constantly stripping line and catching a couple fish that made pretty good runs, I noticed my finger felt a little tender. I looked down and saw it was cut and bleeding. After that I held the line a little more toward my fingertip and as that began to get a groove worn into it I switched to my middle finger until it was time to call it a day. I worry about wearing out the guides on the rod after listening to the sawing sound it made all day.
