    Yeah, I FINALLY hooked in to a good fish Saturday in MA9. I'm an idiot and wasn't paying close enough attention and didn't get a good hook set so it was a LDR. Long enough to see it was a good fish though. At least now I know I'm doing something partially right so that's good. After a good number of outings and no grabs I was beginning to wonder if I was just doing somehting wrong. I picked up a an Outbound Intermediate and spare spool on my way home so we'll see if that helps too.

    Question for you folks, what leader length do you usually use for an intermediate/sinking line?

    I'm still pretty new to the beach game, but when I fish my 40+ intermediate I usually use a pretty short leader. 6-7' feet or so. Sometimes I'll just run a short length of straight fluro, just a few feet.

    I tend to go about half/half between intermediate and floater. I like the intermediate at PnP cause it seems a bit deeper than many of the beaches I fish and it can get down below salad and current messes that really get moving through there sometimes.

    Was able to pick up two more this evening. 6 lb hatchery hen and a matching wild buck. Area 9.


    Not sure why I can't make the picture bigger.....

    Depends on the weight of the tippet and the fly (size and weight); need to make there is positive turnover on the cast! Four to five feet works fine, for me.

    Ok, well that's what I was looking for. I know it will vary depending on fly, etc but the general ball park is what I was looking for. I'm new to sub-surface lines and thus I've always used long(ish) leaders either for stealth on the surface or to get down deep with the floating line. So considerably shorter is the answer I was looking for I guess :) Thanks!
