Cortland® 333 Pro® Trout Sink-Tip Fly Line
Cortland’s 333 Pro Trout Sink-Tip Fly Line has a ten-foot sinking tip designed to get nymphs and streamers down deep in the water column quickly. When top-water action is not an option, sink-tip lines are often the only way to get a fly to where the fish are feeding. The floating portion makes this a great option for fishing tight pockets in lakes with weed beds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Arkie24 Quality > $ Very good sinking tip line for the price. I used it for the white bass run this year and it held up great. I used it on a #8 and it held up to some solid fish. I bought two more spools for the future March 30, 2010

Details:i am fishing mainly for bream & bass
A:I recomend floating line for all Bass and bream fishing, cast easier and with different lenght leaders works well with sinking flies that may be used for Bass and Bream.
A:Lines are dependent on what you want them to do, and for how long.
This line will work for your basic question, but keep in mind, it is an entry level line so you shouldn't expect it to perform very well, or for very long.
In the world of fly lines, the old adage holds true, "You get what you pay for".
A:You could use it for SW, but it will not last very long. The corrosive salt will degrade the finish of the line and make it tacky, then lead to loss of suppleness and casting ability.
If you want a line to use in SW only a handful of lines, but don't want to pay much for it, look at an auction site for some.

Fly fishing line weight is ranked from 1 to 15, with 1 being the lightest and 15 the heaviest
Lighter lines are suited for delicate presentations and for casting light flies
Heavier lines are best for casting large, wind-resistant and heavy flies
Line weight is the easiest to select since this should be matched to your rod and reel
Fly fishing requires a balanced system so match the reel and rod. If you don't, you will hurt your casting accuracy and efficiency.
A 5 weight reel matches up with a 5 weight rod, so it follows that you should select a 5 weight line
Some manufacturers give a leeway by saying you can go one above or below this, say a 4 weight or 6 weight line with a 5 weight reel and rod. If you want to be safe, though, match the line, rod and reel exactly.
Your fly fishing line weight should also be selected based on the fish you want to catch
You'll need line weights from 1 to 7 lbs for lighter fish such as panfish and most trout
Bass need a little heavier weight, from 7 to 9 lbs
Larger freshwater and saltwater fish take the heaviest lines--an 8 to 15 lbs
Details:in the cortland 333Pro trout sink tip line ,is there a 9 weight ?
if not can i use a 8 weight line on my #9 rod and still cast a heavy trout fly ?
