    I was at Outdoor Emporium a few days back and they had several teeny sink lines plus Ultra 3's and Supreme 2's Sink Tip and Sink lines on discount ...between 12.00 and 26.00 bucks. Plus a lot of spools for different reels...cheap...4.00 - 10.00..I really don't know all the makes..but there was SA's and pfluegers plus others.

    Steve,
    I'm pretty sure I've got 5wt sinking line on my 6 wt rod right now and have been thinking about changing it out. Have any 6 or 7 wt. line you'd want to trade?

    I'm on Lone Lake (Apollo off Bayview Rd).

    Hi Jeff, No, wish I did, all my other set ups have the multi-tip lines. If you are thinking about selling it let me know. I am going to go to the Port Townsen FF Show this Sat. maybe I can find a deal on one there. I live on Goss Lake, I have probably seen you on Lone if you fish it much.

    Steve,
    Wish I was able to join you in PT for the show. Have fun.

    You're welcome to give this line a try to make sure it's the right weight. I inheirited it from a friend who was encouraging me to take up fly fishing, but I suspect it's a little light for my new 6wt rod.

    I'd like to buy a multi tip line so I can stay out of the weeds in lone lake and then still be able to use a sinking line for SRC.

    I'll look for you on Lone Lake sometime this spring. I recently got a float tube. I usually put in down by the lilly pads - via my neighbor's dock (last one on that side of the lake)

    Do you fish the salt for SRC?

    Yes, just happened to be going through my gear and since I don't really fish a 5 wt rod anymore have a few 5 wt lines including a full sink type 3 S/A

    Let me know if you are interested?

    t. junkie.

    The line I have is in good condition, but I don't know what brand it is. I would be interested in trading for your 7 wt. line, but can't give you a good description even of what I have. As sinking lines go, I think this one would be rated as a slow sink, maybe type 2?

    Let me know if you're interested, and maybe I can find someone to tell me how much life is left in my line, and what the sink rate is.

    What I do know is: it's blue :eek:
