I`ve been hearing about these for a long time but have no idea of how to attach one to my fly line.I`ve heard of shooting tapers and thats the entire fly line.Are they one in the same? any input for this idiot long rodder would be appreciated.
ogre. If you have access to an orvis shop or catalog ( cabela's is fine too) look in the fly line section. most of the time you can get three seperate size shooting heads that connect to your fly line by leader loops. it saves you from having to buy the 100 plus dollar shooting head system. Mine was 18 bucks and I got it at the orvis in concord. I only use it on my 9 weight becase you will definately know it is connected to your flyline, its like trying to cast a chunk of lead. but once you get the rythem, you get used to it.
