Flylines for big flies

Post by xenia » Wed May 16 2018 11:36

I'm thinking of buying a new #9 intermediate line for pike - big flies on canal, river and lakes.

I'm looking at:

Airflo Sniper
Rio Outbound Short
Guideline Pike
Vision Big Mama

Does anyone have any experience or advice with these lines and any opinion which is best?

Cheers

The Sniper lines chuck big flies, I would get a 10 weight
the intermediate sinks quite fast, if you not in deep water I would use a floater
