Intermediate when fishing around structure (submerged crap that fish like to hide around which also likes to snag your fly) and in the shallows. A line that sinks any faster will only get snagged by the time you regain control of your line after a cast. The slow sink rate will give you more control. If you need to go deeper, then count down longer while you wait. This is part of the control factor. Snaggy places, like around the edges of Rattlesnake Lake (submerged stumps), Pass Lake, and Martha Lake (WB), all call for an Intermediate line. In these places, you're generally going to be casting and retrieving or trolling the deeper water very, very slowly.I have a very basic question for fly fishing on lakes. What is the best overall line type to fish with a streamer or wolley bugger? Sinking? Sinking tip?
I heard about a line with interchangeable sinking tips? Are those any good
