  1. Try a full Sinker. What are you looking to use the sink tip for. The great thing about a full sink line vs a sink-tip is that as you retrieve your fly it stays flat or aims downward in the water column, a natural movement for prey. A sink tip on the other hand tends to rise in the water column, not a natural movement for prey.


    Plus the full sinker casts with out that hinge that haunts all the sink tips.



  2. I would assume it will be alot like fishing the surf here on the Great Lakes. I would start with a sinking line, not to fast though. I would look at smelt/shiner patterns in the 3-6 in range. You will probably have to experiment with depths and speed of retrieves depending on the conditons. Look for streams running into the lake and fish the breaks.


    Hope this helps

    do you notice a difference with the dumbell eyes helping get the fly to the bottom?


    I like the dumb bell eyes to get the fly down and give it a little bit more of a erratic action. I have some of them tied without the eyes and they fish fine, I keep them around for shallower water.
