    I am using a 6wt rod and reel. I already have a type 2 sinking line on the reel that matches the rod. I have a WF line on a new reel and have room for one more line on the spare spool. The lake i will be fishing mostly has a max depth of 15ft and lots of grass/pads during the Summer.
    What should i get?

    I usually only use a floating in summer, sometimes break out the clear intermediate in spring.

    Another vote for a floater.

    Have you used the WF you have w/ the bass flies (and rod) you intend to fish? If you haven't you might wait and see how you actually like the combo.

    If you already have a floating line, I'll suggest a clear, intermediate sinking line.

    I use a bass taper dry fly line. It helps when casting heavy surface poppers.

    My son uses a Wulff 6 weight bug taper and loves it. Handles big flies well. I use the same on a 7 weight and have no complaints.
