DOU­BLE TA­PER OR WEIGHT FOR­WARD FLOAT­ING LINE?

Trout Fisherman (UK) - - Advice Problem Solver -

Con­sid­er­ing the above then, with a long, thick belly sec­tion a dou­ble ta­per ob­vi­ously cre­ates more drag when at rest on the sur­face. It’s pos­si­ble that trout might sense this greater re­sis­tance when ac­cept­ing a fly, caus­ing them to spit your ef­forts at the last minute. A weight for­ward, on the other hand, only has a short belly (head) at its front sec­tion with the re­main­der made up of a thin run­ning line, that is bound to slide more eas­ily through or over wa­ter.
