Ok I must admit I am a novice when it comes to fly fishing. I am a pro at the lead core under a different application though. I was having a discussion whith another fly fisher that said he uses a 2-3 foot section of lead core tied into the fly line to get the presentation down a bit deeper. I have never heard of this... He claims to use a nail knot for the terminal ends, and claims that it does assist in fast water or in deeper presentations.
Ok, logic tells me this will not cast well and this goes against what I (in my limited research) have learned in fly fishing. I understand the concept but have never seen it in action. Can anyone enlighten me on this concept?
Pulling core trolling I have no issues, from monster core to bird core, 2 colors to SWR rigs... Just never seen the application on a fly line.
