    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.

    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!
