10 wt sinking line???
« on: March 29, 2016, 05:30:16 PM »
Looking at the slim options for a 10 wt sinking fly line. Thinking a Rio Deep 7 but doesn't look like it comes in a 10 wt.
Will be used mostly for lake trout. Any suggestions?

Rio Outbound Short WF10I/S6. Business in the front and a party in the back!

The type six head sinks quickly and the intermediate running line allows you to keep it sinking where they live.

i use this line for casting for chinook salmon and rockfish in saltwater from a boat and it would
Be equally at home targeting lake trout and turning over the flies required.

The other option would be tracking down a 250-400gr sink tip shooting head with an intermediate or type three running line... But I don't like involuntary piercings!

Great advice and reply, Andy!

I really liked the "business and party" reference!! I think they should use that on their packaging! ;D ;D ;D
For me, the quality of a trout is not measured in inches or pounds, but rather by the journey and circumstances that allowed our paths to cross...

The Forty Plus Booby Basher line from Airflo, doesn't come for #10 but I guess the #9 would be fine. Just don't cut it at all. However, It's hard to find on stock

There is this potentially, though I honestly do not know how it would perform being triple density  :o

There is also this, which is more traditional from what I can gather

I chase the allure of standing in a river, casting dries in an attempt to watch that beast come up and take my fly.  Then I usually blow it by setting the hook to soon....

Thanks, everybody. I think the Titan type 5 is where we're going. Just not too many options in 10 wt.
I'm also thinking the Mastery Titan for a floating line for pike.
