I'm looking for a new fly line (floater) to fish on my 12ft Loop Grey Line.
Not sure what I'm after but I need something to load the rod in tight spaces.
I currently fish a snowbee xs sink tip on it & wondering if anyone has experience of this rod & a good set up for it.

I think the snowbee xs is a trout line and as such would be too light on a double hander I have a few lines you can try on your rod,short compact scandi lines and shooting heads which are just the job for space thats tight your welcome to pm me and arrange something,

That's a great offer DexterB thanks very much.
I can't remember if it is a trout line or a light Spey line, I've had it for years & I've that many lines for numerous rods without them marked..
I don't think I've used the rod for 3 seasons as I've been fishing with my 13ft 2in yellow line when I've had a chance to get out.
Stepping down to a lighter set up..
Where are you based Dexter?

Thanks again..
I wish I could get a few days off during the week.
I'm usually flat out at work trying to get walls & floors tiled so stew1 & his cronies can get in & get things spick n span..
Should be good for the 30th..
What times kick off & is it weather permitting??

Dexter, a big thank you for today.
I had a good few hours on the water & your expertise & keen eye have helped me no end.
What I learned today will go a long way (hopefully from the end of my rod tip ?)
A big thanks again.. ??
