Greg, your in luck, I found that 9 wt floater. as i said I'll bring the whole reel. I have to admit, I was a bit too quick to say you can keep the line if you want... for all I know the stripers will all be hitting poppers and gurglers all season, and I'd be in hell!!! but you can certainly use it for as long as needed.I'll have it at the tying clave for you.

The 9-Wgt Floater is actually for me. I'm going down to FLA in March & just thought that I should bring along a floater "just in case", I'm not sure that I'll need it, but if I don't bring one, you know I'll Surely need it!
