    Default Want to try Shark Skin Fly line 5WT.

    Last year I bought a spool of 3M's shark skin fly line to give it a try for my 5 WT. After using it it I am trying a different line.
    Pro's:
    Does shoot great
    Floats good

    Cons:
    Noisy
    bad for stripping (rubs your skin off your finger

    The line is in great shape as I only really use it in April and May for lake fishing for dollies. All I am asking is for shipping and handling cost of about ten bucks. I will ship it using priority mail. I would prefer someone from Alaska call dibs on this since we don't have the chance to try stuff out as easily as our brethren in the lower 48.

    Shoot me a PM if interested.

    The line is gone. Thanks Vance, I hope you like it. Please give us your thoughts on it this spring after using it a while. Warning though, if you strip line frequently, wrapped some tape around your fingers.

    Thank you sir!!!
    Very generous of you!
    I'm a rookie so I'm not sure how valid my opinions may be, but I will be glad to share them after I give it a try.
    Thanks again!

    The first thing I noticed was how rough it was on the fingers so I went out and got me some finger grurds.

    Cut fingers are a sign your doing enough fishing. If your fingers aren't bleeding at the end of the day you have done something wrong.

    Akflyfisher, quick question.
    Do you know if that line is the "Trout Taper" or "GPX" taper?
