Looking at purchasing an intermediate sinking fly line for salt/w.

I would like to hear your preferences and if you have used or prefer a sink tip line?

For use off a boat mainly.



I'd start SWoffing with an intermediate - I'm still a novice but I find the sink tip a bit unweildly when casting from a pitching boat. The sink tip will shoot further and push into a stronger wind, but, personally I have difficulties in getting the fly to turn over correctly. I am probably releasing the cast too early, but at this stage I find the Intermediate line is easier to use.

To give you some idea, when on dry land I can shoot the full [sink tip] fly line but from a boat I can only manage about 60 feet and it will often fall on top of itself in a heap.

I have a WF floating line I use wading sandflats but after I get the new boat will be going after the salmon kings etc. on fly.

Been in the backyard pool counting sink rates for my flies and looking at maybe getting a 300 or 350ips as well.

I guess the quality of the top brands are pretty close? Not sure.

Fly lines are a bit expensive to buy and try and find out you dont really like it. [i got caught once, a few years ago I purchased a flyline for trout recommended from a salesperson in a fly shop and it was absolute crap].

Looking forward to a day casting course next month, hoping to improve the technique.

Hey Ken,
