Fly Fishing Lines Part Two: Floating Fly Lines

Without the right fly fishing fly line, you won’t be able to cast your fly successfully. The purpose of this series is to help you understand the different fly lines so that you can make the right decision.

Just to recap, fly lines are essential fly fishing tools. They help you cast your fly with ease so that you can catch your desired fish. When you cast your rod, energy is transferred through the fly line to help you cast your fly.

In last week’s post, we looked at sinking fly fishing lines; this week we will be taking a brief look at floating fly lines.

Understanding floating fly lines

Floating fly lines are versatile fly lines that can be used in rivers and lakes. They float on the surface of the water when you cast your fly; they are suitable for fishing for trout that feed on the surface of the water. Floating fly lines are easier to control than sinking fly lines because they float on the surface of the water.

Since they are easier to handle, floating fly lines are great for the beginner fly fisher. They are also ideal for dry flies.
