    I like peanut butter M&Ms. I don't like kids or sportsball.

    It's going to continue until you catch a steelhead or quit fishing.

    Hey man, you can't just walk in here and steal my two trademarks. "Sportsball" is MY word!

    So I learned something valuable that I would like to pass on to the other noobs once again. I want to talk about fly line storage. If you are going to store your fly line say off the reel and back on the original packaging, do not wrap it tight. I learned the hard way that fly line indeed has memory. I temporarily removed my shooting line off of my reel, and indeed wound it tight on its packaging spool. Once it was back on the reel, and I was fishing I found that the line was shooting terribly. I noticed that my line was very rough. So I found that stretching it back out to take the ripples out of it helped with the shoot ability greatly. So if you store your lines tight it will cause memory problems with the line, and I also found that with the temperature droping the line acts differently now almost stiffer in some way vs soft and supple with it was warm during the summer. Just another contribution from your friendly neighborhood DanielOcean.

    its not memory so much as twist you likely put in while stripping or spooling. temp does bring out the bad on any line. try compline 50 lb yellow. best shooting mono for cold temp.I've found. lost creek has it.
