    I was in our local Wal-Mart last year and saw some light SA floating lines for $10.79. I was hesitant and figured, "What the heck?" So, I bought a 4-weight and 3-weight. I've used them a year and they still work and cast just fine.

    Hi Spysmasher,

    It is true that lines are much better today and float better than ever. You do need to keep your line clean and they do require a little attention. Since you are fishing pan fish you may be in water with moss and other such stuff that could affect you fly line. If it seems like it is not floating well after some use a cleaning may be in order. It also helps if you make sure the end of your fly line is sealed if it doesn't have a built-in loop.

    Frank,

    Great tip. More important than many realize.
