How do you clear the fog around line weight discrepancies?
Stuart Hughes – Trusted tackle shop where you get decent advice and they sell products they believe in (not just the big profit margin ones). Adam Morgan – Try it out. Find its optimum load point for your rod and cast. I use a 7wt floater on 2 of my rods and it casts different on each one. I can aerialise more line on one than the other to achieve maximum distance. Robert L Watson – The present situation is a bit of a mess. There needs to be a set standard they all commit to and make life for us anglers a wee bit more straightforward. Jake Waterman – Stick with one brand than there’s nothing to compare with. Chris Ferguson – One manufacturer sells 6/7wt lines, which adds to the confusion. Most lines are fairly described and it is just a matter of adjusting the length outside the rod tip that suits the rod. Denis Goulding – I try to use 7wts as much as possible but with the stiffer 7wt rods, 8wt lines load an awful lot better. If I could, I would always use a line weight heavier than the rod is marked for. Now, does anyone know a line that fishes 1-5 inches below the on a static retrieve and stays there...?
