hello again at the forum,looking for advise again please I do a fair bit of seatrout and salmon fly fishing and am more or less settled into useing drennan-sub surface nylon for all my fishing,be it with a floating,intermediate,or faster sinking line and have wondered for a few seasons if i should try fluro-carbon or braided nylon has anyone tried these lines and if you have how have you fared......thankyou Fishingdaft
"Be you most gentle with your fishing, and even gentler with those you are fortunate enough to capture, as, for a fleeting moment, you will be handling the future parent of the fish that you would wish to cast a fly at tomorrow..."
From some years of personal use, and lost fish just at the net, I would go for nylon everytime. Fluorocarbon can be very brittle and I have lost fish literally at the net while using fluoro if the fish slashes it's head violently. Nylon is not so brittle, and much cheaper, and can be used in different colours, depending on the conditions. In the final analysis, I guess it is down to individual preference. I have not lost any fish at the net using nylon, so I prefer that. I should also say the vast majority of what I have written is when fishing for ST at night.
