Most Skagit-style spey setups these days involve a separate running line – the thinner diameter line behind the head that isn’t involved in casting, but allows mending and line control and a ‘handle’ for you to pinch when you’re swinging your fly.
We’ve written quite a bit about running lines here on the Deneki blog. Way back in 2009 we did a running line roundup, and we’ve done a few articles with posts on how to manage running line, how to avoid tangles, and how to hold your loops.
Running line trends seem to change every couple of years, though, so today we thought we’d find out what you’re using on there on the river in 2014.
