View Full Version : Multi tip lines
02-28-2005, 04:28 PM
I am thinking of getting a sink tip line for some of the pools I come across, but being a low budget fly fisherman I was wondering if anyone had any experience in some of the multi tip fishing lines out there. I know they cost more up front, but if you get "four" lines in one than you are really saving in the long run, and dont have to buy or carry several spools for your reel. I'm just looking for some input before I get into trouble for spending too much on a line I'm not going to be happy with. Thanks, Chris.

Try an add on (loop to loop) sinking tip first on the floating line you have. They work faily well, but do have some hinging issues you'll find with just about any multi tip line...

you have the same qualtys as the multi tip line but at a lower cost. here is a simple trick you can do is whip a loop in the end with (g) size tying thread and a bobbin by spining it around the line thousands of times till tight and completly covered. another trick would be to buy some cortland mini heads size 3 and 6 from bob and some t-14 and make some tips. you could do a multi tip for around 30 bucks to a old fly line and still have the hinging effect of the 150 dollar multi tip line. :D
good luck and tight lines rhino..........

Rio T-14 or Cortland LC13 are what you need. Buy the Cortland loop sleeves, throw away the shrink tubing. Nail knot the sleeve over the line with 20 or 30# fireline, 4 or 5 nail knots is perfect. Loop on the end of your WF floater, you're good to go. Buy a couple 30' sections of T-14, and make an 18' and a 12' from one, and a 15', 10' and 5' from the other. Will cover you for just about every scenario.

Thank you for your input. I guess i just didnt realize it was that "easy" to make your own setup. I'll try and get with Steve and get the stuff I'll need next time I'm up in the area.
