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.
On two-generators or more; I have experienced much difficulty getting my streamers to sink/present well due to the force of the current. I have used intermediate sinking line but it did not seem to work well. I think I will try a complete sinking line next and see if it works any better.
I am glad Rod/Adam/David gave their insight on this topic as it has been one that has giving me trouble on high water flows.
