    Hi guys, I just started fishing still waters for trout. I use a 5 wt 9' rod.

    I have 3 lines, and I wanted your opinion, so you can tell me what kind of conditions can I cover with them.

    All the fishing is done from boat/belly boat.

    1) Scientific Anglers GPX WF #5 line
    2) Rio Density Compensated 24ft Sinking tip 150 grains. 4.75 ips
    3) Scientific Anglers Streamer Express Clear Tip , intermediate sinking line 1.75 ips

    What do you guys think ?

    Thanks

    I'm totally new to the stillwater trout game. I'd say that you have it all covered. I've got a floater, intermediate and full sink. Your triplets should get your offering to any fish in any conditions that I've been told of or read about. Now go fish and post some reports with fish porn.

    I try to cover up my mistakes with my lines.
    Like for instance:

    Did you put a dent in the car? my line is: "What dent?" Sometimes it covers and sometimes it doesn't. :D

    You are fishing with a floating line, slow sink line and fast sinking long sink tip. Just make sure you have a reel or spare spool for each line and you are covered.
