Thread: Lines - lost

    Default Lines - lost

    Hi,

    I m lost between styles and lines, could some one give me a quick crash course as to the key differences advantages and disadvantages between standard lines, skagit lines and shooting-heads type of lines?

    Thanks!

    If you are just getting started i would look for an integrated scandi floater with a pack of poly leaders. Keeps it nice and simple with no joins from heads to running line and fairly easy to cast

    Hi

    What are the advantages of using a shooting head plus running line versus a traditional Spey "full" line?

    Thanks

    Shooting head easier to use in tight spaces and a little easier to cast, also you can add various tip density to them , in my opinion would be easier for a newbie to learn to use .Spey line the bigger the d loop the easier to cast .But as with any cast its all about timing with shooting heads and running line one reel just change the heads . Spey line another reel with different spey line .
