A note with the Zap-a-Gap...this a great idea, as every time you trim your line you expose a tiny bit of the core that will readlily soak up water...sealing it off with Zap or UV Knot sense will keep it watertight and therefore help it float longer....and the same goes with cracks in your line...ClackaRam said:I have tried Matery and Rio lines, but I keep coming back to 444 Lazer Line.
Put a dab of zap a gap at your fly line-leader connection, and make sure some of the zap a gap absorbs into the fly line. The will usually prevents tip sink. I reapply evey time I tie on a new leader. Regular cleaning/conditioning of your flyline will also prevent cracks which is another reason for sinking line.
Or if none of this helps, just rub some fly floatant on the sinking area.
