    Had a question for all of you

    May want to check out a line called the Yancy line, I think Dennis Dickson sells it on his sons website called Streamside Flyshop.com I have used before and it is very effective for winter and summer steelheading. It is a multi tip line and allows you to spey cast a single handed rod! Oh by the way Rio versatip suck, those who fish it, must not realize that the tips don't turnover how they should. No offense just my two cents. Take the time and check this line out, you wont regret it, neither will your arm!!

  3. Had a question for all of you

    Can you tell me more about the Yancy line?

    I checked out there Web site for more info,
    but I dont understand, is this a flat mono
    shooting line?

    Streamside flyshop sells the multi tip w/o
    sinking heads for $59.99 alot for mono.

    " Yancy and Mark came up with the forward
    belly design Dennis improved it with the flat mono
    running line".Is it both?. :CONFUSED

    Swinger, I think you have the wrong person! I do know this that the flat mono line does act like a shooting line, you can actually use either a small diameter running line or the mono. This is not expensive compared to the Rio or Airflo lines. It is not the mono that costs the money it is the actual fly line itself. It does work and is effective, if you have never tried it, you should, you will be amazed.

    All of the advice I've read in this thread is good advice, but here's some more... :pROFESSOR. Figure out what your price range is then invest in one of the well-known commercial systems (Airflo, SA, Rio, etc.) recommended here in this thread. Personally, I have Rio, Airflow, and Yancy on my different rods and I like 'em all, but use 'em for different purposes. They each have somewhat different design centers and, as you might expect, their casting characteristics differ accordingly. When you get to know the characteristics of each, you'll have no problem using 'em in the way they were intended.

    As you get more and more experience (and knowledge) under your belt you'll probably start doing what many of the folks do in this forum (not me, tho'), and start configuring custom lines tailored to your casting preferences.

    Cheers,

    Michael

    Jim,

    We all know what your problem is. You shouldn't even be on the river. You should stay on the bank where the Krispy Kremes are.
