Hey Randall, I've got a sinking line on my 8wt reel. I believe its a 250 or 300 grain. about 6 inch per sec.
Give me a call or PM and you can borrow the reel for your next trip up to your Dads. I won't need it for awhile.
We need to get together again soon to make up for our last outting on that COLD, WINDY Sat. awhile back.
P.S. How is the trip planning going?
