Hey all. I'm a long time lurker here and at fishbc. I've had my Sage launch 3wt rod for the Skagit for a few years now and absolutely love it, however I have never really liked the ghost/clear floating line I use with it. I work with copper wire every day that seems to have less memory than...
Anyone ever get a troublesome reoccurring twist in their running line?
I have this at the moment with a line I've been using a lot lately for tossing big drys, but I think I might have run across a common sense solution, but I've yet to test it out yet - I figure if I just let all the line out...
I had some 6 wt Rio indicator line but it was defective so I took went to exchange it but they only had some 7 wt line. So my question is do you think that this will improve my casting or will I be running into problems?

Hey I'm buying a full sink line but not to sure what to get. I don't want to spend a crazy amount of money on this but I don't mind spending a little. I mostly go in lakes near Squamish n whisler area, I'm gonna be using mostly leeches and wooly buggers. Any suggestion would be helpfull thank you
my floating fly line is starting to sink. i have cleaned it and kept it in good shape but i dont know why it is sinking. i am wondering if there is anything i can put on it to get it to float or do i have to buy new fly line.

In my opinion, wet line chironomiding looks easier as you don't have to cast long...
I am planning on switching from a Windcutter to a Skagit line for my 12' 6" spey rod. The Rio guide recommends a 525 grain line. My preferred vendor only carries 500 or 550 grain. Is it better to go up or down from the recommended grain?

I am interested in adding some marks on my fly line and backing to estimate how much is out. Has anyone ever done this? I am hesitant to simply use a sharpie because I am worried that it might damage the line, or am I just being paranoid?
I was out last weekend trying a new (to me) head and as usual I was doing fine until i got to about 25 feet of running line out and i was having a tough time avoiding tangles when i shoot the line out.
i was wondering how you guys control/handle your line. do you hold it with the top hand...
I fish a clear intermediate for 95% of all my beach/shallow water fishing. My favorite is Airflo's coldwater striper line. Same as I use here in New England for Stripers, Blues, Bonito & False Albacore. But that's just my opinion -- your mileage may vary.
