    noooooooooo. you need to strip or shoot the running line. need a fly line type of material

    You can use the thick, hollow braid that you also use for making braided loops. It shoots nicely, but tends to leave you with pretty sore hands after a hard couple of days fishing. It also gets blown around in the wind too easily and can create havoc in your basket or on the deck.

    You definitely cant use micron or dacron. You cant grip it at all (and you need to) it will tangle like crazy and it will cut your fingers.
