Loomis Glx

do you use an intermediate and sinking line when fishing for trout on a river ?

i fish the river devon in scotland and i am going to buy a hardy rod witch is 6-7 ft and AFTM 3-4 4-5for the 7 ft but there are no sinking or intermediate lines available so i dont no if you use them in river fishing

A very slow sinking "glass" intermediate is all i will use if i have to go deeper, BUT only on larger rivers. A "glass" or "slime-line" intermediate is one which is clear and has a mono core.

A fast sinker is not needed, those with a Di-7 would reach the bottom of most rivers in less than a few seconds, a slow sinking intermediate could be used on deeper water, often its not needed however.

Its very rare that i will use an intermediate on any river as using fluorocarbon and a weighted fly will get it down to the fish feeding depths with ease.

If its not fishing deep enough with a floater or is being moved by the wind then a sink tip line like the "Midge Tip" by Rio, or the new Ridge Nymph Line by Airflo-
both incorporate a sink tip made from a clear intermediate which sink very slowly and allow you to control the drift of flies in the wind. Orvis also a make a sink tip line.

For a Hardy or Alnwick rod, look no further than the Marksman, at around £349- with a smooth medium to fast action.

Equally a good rod for light rivers is the G Loomis GLX streamdance, at £519- i own both and out of the two would have to say i prefer the G Loomis.

You can buy all of the items i listed above directly from the US from cabelas.com(except the Hardy rod)

Or from the UK from- Fishtec.co.uk-or glasgow angling centre or FMTC(the fishermans tackle company-based in scotland)
