General Discussion / Re: Orvis Access Saltwater Fly Line
« Last post by Bob on March 24, 2015, 12:55:35 PM »
Some thoughts:
1. Reviews of this line at orvis.com are overwhelmingly positive. No comments on sinking.
2. You could talk to Orvis online (online chat option) to see what they know.
3. Orvis is really good about customer satisfaction. If you bring it to the Westheimer store, I'll bet they'll replace it immediately if you ask.

Damon's Seven Lakes / Re: 2015-03-22 trip with grandson.

Even after all the rain we've been having the fish were doing their thing.

Bass were in the shalllows, looking for food, and the large bluegills were staging in the deeper water just outside the spawning beds.

I was using a heavier streamer for part of the time. Maybe that's all it was. It just seemed like so much line was sinking. I guess I'll just have to keep an eye on it and see if it always sinks or if it's just with those heavier flies. Orvis is usually pretty good about returns so if it becomes a constant problem I bet they'll return or exchange it.

Thanks for the response. I don't think I'm using flourocarbon. This is what I was using in a 2x 7 1/2 ft.

That's just regular mono right?

I'm tentative on this. Just signed my 4-year old up for soccer and the 11th is his first game so if it's early enough we'll try to make it out afterwards. I've been roped into coaching. Don't laugh, I played a lot of soccer growing up and even earned 2 varsity letters in high school.

I've decided it's time to start teaching him the path of enlightenment and this is a perfect event.

I think I might pay to see you in a soccer uniform! LOL Dan

Do not know about the flyline. Wondering if you are using flurocarbon for leader which may be sinking the tip?
