Default Re: Sinking Line ???

Thanks thats a great option and a lot cheaper than buying two sinking lines. It's not really rocket science catching Shad in the Potomac River. Casts do not need to be long. You just need to get the fly down to the right depth. I fished yerterday with the spinning rod out of my Kayak. I was slamming them and kept getting guys crowd around me thinkinig I had the hole. I kept trying to explain it was in the presentation but with little success. Had one guy in a bass boat about to push me out of the way trying to get his line to swing into the same area. I just moved and still caught fish. Most guys were using mono and not getting down to the fish. I use light braid with a momo leader. Get it to the bottom and barely reel in the line. I probably had 90+ fish day yesterday in 3 hours of fishing. Mostly Hickories but I did manage 6 Americans. Hope to hit it again tomorrow with the fly Rod.
