    I bought one, and its clearance makes the dirt roads a little tough, so as a fishing car you may want to look at a Ferrari instead... I wish I had.

    When I was better informed with lines I remember reading that the Airflo had a mono core. That would be consistent with the memory problems you have noted. It will straighten out as you fish, but I...

    I think the proper answer to your question is "Yes, you probably are," but only you know for sure. The benefit of the indicator vs. watching your line tip is distance. Imagine that your fly (the...
