    Lightbulb Intermediate Line...help me choose please

    Hey Guys

    Im still fairly new to flyfishing.. I have a cheapish Inter line but I want to get a propper one now. Im fishing in the salt- surf, river and estuaries. The water is quite coolish.

    Here are 4 lines im choosing between just dont know which is a better buy:

    http://buy.scientificanglers.com/lin...w-sinking.html
    http://airflofishing.com/airflo-fly-...ge-striper.cfm

    Thanks again

    In my book ...

    Any of the Airflo Sixth Sense lines are what you want when you're fishing streamers ...

    I have the Fast Glass 1.5IPS for my 7WT and it chucks a mile, I would however not suggest that you underline
    when buying that particular line (ie : Don't get a 5/6 line if you're going to be fishing with a 6WT rod ... rather
    get the 6/7)

    But to get bak to my original point ... intermediate or sinker (for non specialist applications and general streamer
    fishing ... you can't beat those Sixth Sense Cores. It really is like having ESPN ... err ... ESP

    HTH, YMMV.

    Thumbs up

    My personal favourite is the Cortland Little Tunny. It cast like a bomb, has almost zero memory and can be used in cold and warm water without a problem. Use it for largies, tigers and in the salt.

    +1 for the little tunny from my side too. The other line I can vouch for is the Sci Anglers "striped bass"
    Check your knots!

    Just make sure you get a line with a uniform sink rate in the tip, the only way to check that is to cast it into water and to check how it actually sinks.

    A lot of lines sink faster in the belly of the head than in the tip and taper which results in indirect contact with your flies ... IMHO, YMMV.

    Thanks so much for the info guys

    When you guys talk about the Sixth Sense line by AIrflo.. Is it the normal fresh water one named Airflo Sixth Sense Inter? http://www.airflofishing.com/airflo-...termediate.cfm
    or is the Airflo Ridge Striper also a Sixth Sense line??

    Sorry for all the questions, just don't want to buy the wrong line

    Yes it is.

    Just watch out if a line is designated as cold, when it is used in warmer settings is typically gets 'sticky' which leads to tangles in your line when casting long lines. Its fine when the line will remain cool/cold.

    You need to check your application and the temperatures involved.

    That happened to my sinking line, Cortland, is there anything I can do to rectify it?
