Howdy all. Sinktip's statement about the old 9140-4 and how it likes to be underlined for floating lines got me thinking about sinking lines for that rod. My favorite is also the first one I ever tried on it 6 years ago. It's a "launcher" line as marketed by the "fly shoppe" in Welches Oregon. This line is dedicated to the sunk fly. No floating tip here. They give credit to hundreds of folks for the development of this line, very rare in the fly fishing industry Basically it's a cortland big game 12 weight with the front taper cut off, and 15 foot sections of 11 weight type 2, type 4, and type 6 you can loop on. It's got a short head for loading the rod fast, but the running line is thicker than any commercial spey line on the market that I've seeen. It's thick enough that you can actually mend the head out to 60 or 70 feet if the water you're standing in isn't too deep. It also floats extremely high. Best of all it's the easiest chop job in the world, and it won't break the bank! One cut... Or of course you could buy it... Nah! Chopping lines is too much fun!
