hey,

i have the problem, that i have a reel with floating line on and only one extra spool for it.

cause im here from germany i have no chance to buy another spool for that reel, and i dont want to buy a new reel.( its a Vision Koma , dont know if you ever heared about that...!?)

now i wanna put line on that spool....what should i do?

i enjoy to fish lakes, i thought , i have a floating line so i only need a fast sinking tip line.....

but what if the fish are in about 2 -3 foot deep?what about using different stipping technics?

i ll need a intermediate then right?

i m not feeling to do this decision allone, cause i never fished for trout and so here before...


what would you do?

My goto line for lake fishing is an intermediate camo/clear sink line. I have caught more trout on this line than any other. Mind you I do not do much chironomid fishing. I very seldom use my full sink. Just one guys way of doing things.

I'd keep your floating line on the spool, for fishing 2' - 6' deep.

Just use fluorocarbon leader material (as it sinks quickly) - lengthen it to 10' - 14' - use bead head patterns and others with a little weight to them - and slow your retrieve down (use a slow hand-twist).
It'll work just fine for the depths you specified.

Of course - you always have the option of fishing under an indicator with the floating line, as well - something you can't do with an intermediate.

I have a couple clear intermediate lines - but find my floating line so much more pleasurable to cast, that I rarely use them anymore (all the clear intermediate lines I have used, have a tendency to kink in colder water - and just don't "shoot" as well as my floating lines) for fishing down to 10 or so feet. Deeper than that, and I'll throw the spool with a full sink line on it.

So to sum up - you should be just fine with a floating and full sinking line.

Viel gluck, mein freund!

You are fine...that reel will do ok and the lines you have will perform well also...the Vision Koma reels are available through our store but I do not have any of the cassetts in stock...make sure you maintain that reel...

hi,


first i wanna thank you for your answers.( and the last sentence in german double tap)

you really help me with my decision, i was a little bit annoying, cause i wasnt too sure.

so ill buy a full sinking line and i hope that will do me agood service in the most lake situations.....


@salar, this vision koma is a nice reel for little money, in germany its about 100 € which is a 120 bucks aproximately. ill keep you in mind if i need another spool, maybe you can order it for me then!


take care guys and tight lines


cheers
