Fly Lines - Which one?
Posted 03 March 2005 - 09:01 PM
I'm currently looking for a weight forward floating line to match my 8wt Sage XP...Haven't settled on any brand or make yet. I'm looking for something that can cast comfortably within the 50 foot range with pretty good accuracy but need be, I would be able to shoot a whole whack of line off? I'll be using this line mostly for steelhead and salmon in rivers but also pike and carp from my friend's flats skiff...Is there an all around line that blends average distance/accuracy and just plain distance together in one?
Any help is much appreciated
Thanks a bunch

The S.A. XXD seems to be a combination distance/fishing line. It loads nicely and has a nice long head for carrying lots of line. My only dislike is the super thin running line. It hovers in the water more than floats.
