Thread: End of Floating Line Sinking

  1. Default End of Floating Line Sinking

    Noticed today while fishing that the end of my floating Orvis Wonderline was sinking and dragging my popper down when stripping. Line is only 6 months old and I wipe it with a wet cloth and dry after each use. Any suggestions.
    Thanks.

    is the end of the line sealed? If you trimmed it at some point and didn't seal it it could be absorbing water.

    Have not trimmed it. Same as it came out of the box.

    You might check the end for micro cracks, maybe the core is wicking water.

    It's because it's an Orvis line. Seems like every Orvis Wonderline line I every owned turned out to be a sink tip.
    Cortland Sylk is another sink tip floating line.
    Best lines (for me) that the tips constantly float are, SA Sharkskin and Rio Gold. I have had good luck with Rio Selective Trout too.
