    John-
    I'm very interested in your camera. I have the W10, but the viewing screen drives me nuts on a sunny day.
    Pls PM me your payment preferences and details.

    Thanks,

    Search EBay for Airflo Ridge Supple Impact lines in a WF7F. $30 and free shipping from fadedflyllc. Best lines I've ever used, and can't beat the price. I bought one from them just as a spare.

    Steve-
    I've sold all I intended to, but for a fellow Virginian (I'm a Va Tech grad), I'll send you 100 of the ones I was keeping. Sent you a PM with the details.

    I'd say 14's and 16's but they'd be too big for 18's.

    I'll PM you. Think I PM'd Ted too, but I have trouble with PM's for some reason.

    Ted, and Dave too, if you don't get it, let me know by...

    I'm with Silver Creek: I've had a tough time finding the right joint for nylon to fluoro. Tried the blood, surgeon's, loop-to-loop, etc. Tried the rings, which seemed like the ideal solution since...

    As noted above, there are basically three types: A fixed, rigid Kapok-type; manually inflatable, and auto-inflating (both CO2). Your requirement not to be cumbersome eliminates the first.

    Go read what Dr Fish wrote. Then read it again.
    I'm not sure about the sink rate - flouro is a little denser than nylon, but 3X the sink rate? I'll have to think about that a while.

    But the crux...

    DT lines offer the same basic taper they did 40 years ago, while the WF lines have evolved to optimize casting distance, presentation, fly weight and bulk, wind conditions, etc, etc.

    Byron is correct. It's a Federal tax called the Dingell-Johnson that was created about 60 years ago on rods, reels, nets, line, flies, etc (I think even boats and motors) and was modeled after the...

    I'm kind of with Buddy on this - it's going to be a trial and error solution, and the solution will change every time you move to a new water depth.

    I fish sink tips almost exclusively in...

    Has anyone else noticed how stainless hook flies tied with synthetic hair (Ultrahair, Congo Hair, Super Hair, etc) tend to rust? Even if they've never been wetted, sitting in a fly box in a humid...

    I've never used an auto-inflate, but read many complaints where some brands had gone off in the garage, on a humid day, etc. They are not supposed to inflate due to casual water (splashing, etc), but...

    I've never caught a whiting on a fly. Thought they were strictly sand flea eaters.
    For pomps, I catch them as a bonus when I'm trout fishing, usually on Clousers in 2's or 4's. Let the fly get deep.
