I was curious about the sinking line as to how deep it would get the flies on heavy generation. I have to say I was quite surprised how deep our flies were getting. In most areas of the river we were able to get them down to the bottom.

Also - its also been said to me that sinking lines don't cast well. We didn't have any trouble what so ever laying out tons of line with that Scott 6wt.
