Podcast: Jim Lepage on Floating Fly Lines for Trout

January 1, 2010 By: Marshall Cutchin

The VP of rod and tackle for Orvis talks extensively with Tom Rosenbauer about floating fly lines — why you might fish a double-taper rather than a weight-forward, why cleaning and stretching are so important, and other topics — in this new podcast.
“A weight-forward and a double-taper are exactly the same for the first thirty feet: they weigh the same, the tapers are the same. But remember, it’s only for the first thirty feet. And actually, if everyone could cast thirty feet well, that’s all you really need to catch ninety percent of the fish we fish for.”
