Hi everyone, I going to put fly fishing line on my rattle reals, before i spend the $ i need to know what to buy, i've used it in other houses and really like it, but I don't know what kind it was, floating or sinking? Appreciate any advise

Sure fly line is great to use but it also comes with a price unlike some other dacron line. But in your case get the sinking. Why would it make sense to get the floating??? It doesn't need to float all in the ice hole. grin.gif
I'm with Cliff and get 20lb tip-up line which is much cheaper. With this line, if you wanted to, you can run a ice buster bobber on it and it will work just fine (I do it). I'm sure the bobber doesn't fit on the fly line. Nice thing about the ice busters is you can clip them on and off when ever you want and you can just use a really small snap weight for a bobber stop.

We use the sinking fly line. It will last forever and it is easier to handle. Best of all it is much less likely to tangle and is easier to see on the fish house floor.

Have Fun!

I forgot to add, if you can find some vinyl coated solid decoy line (this is line that harpooners use to attach to decoys used for spearing) that stuff works even better. I have some that is 15 years old and is still in great shape.
Have Fun!
