    Thanks; Yes, I fish it on a floating line with a 7-1/2 ft tapered leader.

    God I love fishing full floaters and a normal leader. Takes on/near the surface are awesome

    Not often. It was my Grandfathers and it has a place on my fireplace mantel. It comes out from time to time to go fishing though.

    That's cool. I haven't seen a bear in a while. My neighbor said he saw a small one walk through our yard a few weeks ago though.
