I am wanting to cast flies into shallow water (2-6ft) around edges of reeds and onto shoals, what is the best line to use? my intermediate sink constantly hooks up with the bottom on slow retrieves. I am considering buying the Rio midge tip for this. Has anyone tried this line? Or would I be better off saving $100 and fishing naked with a floating line and long leader? Any help is much appreciated

you are talking floating line water. a 10-12 leader will be fine.

p.s. For the sake of others at the lake, at least shorts and a tank top should be worn.

thanks professori. I prefer to continue fishing the naked method, usually keeps my favorite spots on the lakes from over crowding
