So, this sucks. I was messing with my fly or split shot while fishing down at Bird Creek (probably my first problem, right?) when my fly line, which was floating in the water in front of me, got pushed in between the big rocks I was standing on by the incoming tide. The line got wedged between two humongous rocks, and I was stuck with no recourse but to snap off my line. It's sink-tip line (brand new this season), and the break is completely behind the sinking tip, in the floating portion of the line, probably about 1/3 down the length of the line.
Am I just screwed? I actually tied a double surgeon knot to reattach the line at the break, but it's a huge knot with two pieces of fly line. I could actually get it to cast, but not very well. It doesn't exactly glide through the guides. I was surprised it went through at all.
Do any of you know a knot I could use with a slimmer profile? Any other methods of splicing fly line I may not know about? My last resort would be to just cut it at the break, throw out the tip, and use it as another spool of floating line. I think I would still have enough line to throw it as far as I would ever need. All the same, I was liking my sink-tip, and I'm not over-eager to go purchase another length of it for $75!
Your help and advice is greatly appreciated.
