    Default 12wt Fly Line Advice

    Hi All,

    I'm looking for some advice with regards to fly line for my 12wt reel. I would like to know if it would be best to buy floating, intermediate or sinking line?

    I will be buying a spare spool at some point but not really sure when that will be, so im just wondering which type of line would be the best all round until i get another spool.

    I dont really have a species im going to target in particular as im planning on using it for any species of fish that needs a very large fly chucking at it.

    Cheers

    Tom

    I would figure out your line choice when you make your choice on what you are fishing for and where.

    You really can't choose a line until you know what you're going to do with it.
    I'll fish a 12wt floating line in the surf at Cape Cod when the baits are big..Like 8 inches or better. Some one else might fish an intermediate in the same situation. If you're a boater an integrated line would make much more sense.
    The fact is though, you're not going to need a 12wt of any kind all that often here in New England when fishing "inshore" (Even if you were out chasing blue fins, you'd want a 14wt )
    If I were you, I'd wait to get something until I was sure that I had a use for it.
