Sweet floating streamer line: what do you like?

Good recs. K Smith I really like the sound of the Airflo Nymph. If it doesn't float that high, prob not that big of a deal for the streamer, maybe for the mouse. Airflo Streamer and Rio Outbound also sound promising. I do like the durability of Airflo lines, Rio not so much. A lot to consider!

I've never really had an issue with AF lines not floating well.

I seemed to have lost something. You all talk about tapers as an everyday subject. I seem to be lost in what they are. I just buy a fly line because I like the colors, because they are easy to see with my old eyes. Somewhere along the line of fly fishing I lost out on what is talked about. I've been throwing flies around for 60 some years. Never worried what the taper was.

Way over thinking the "problem" here. Just about any quality floating line will work for your streamer fishing. You pick what you like. The bigger issue is rod/line weight matching the size & weight of the streamer.

That is certainly true, but I personally like having specialty lines designed for specific fishing applications or types of fishing that make things easier.
We've never had it so good as far as choices go in regards to equipment, be it lines, rods etc to fit every budget.

My experience suggests that your leader construction will have a lot to do with being able to cast 'streamers' with any floating line that matches your rod.
Since most streamer fishing is done by casting the fly into a location where drift line and sink time are important components to success, I don't expect my line to do more than carry the load and turn it over.

I have outbound short lines in 8 and 10 weights and have been happy with the performance for bigger stuff

Yup, and any old rod will work. And any old screwdriver will work as a pry bar. And any old doctor can treat cancer. And any old mechanic can work on a Ferrari.

No need to specialize ever. :rolleyes:
