Sea trout fishing with floating line

Hello guys, what is the biggest advantage of using floating line? As I can see a lot of danish flyfishers use floating line instead of intermediate line. Thanks for your answer

I (and we) usually fish shallow water spots, where the fish come to feed, so there is absolutely no need to get the fly deep down. Moreover, flies do not get stuck in weed or rocks on the bottom.

shallow water...

Hi Vanuz, thanks, it makes sense but generally I have no such problem with intermediate line too. At first I thought if the fish hunt for their prey in upper layers of water.

Not long ago I visited an aquarium...salt water of course... Apart from the others, there was a huge cylindrical one - right in the middle of the room, it might have been 4-5 metres high. It was basically stocked with fish of all kinds. I kept looking inside for about 5 minutes, call me blind, but I couldn´t find seatrouts there.

:lol: Guess where I eventually found them?

Guess?...

Hey Vanuz,

Guess where I eventually found them?

A. You didn't
B. In your dreams
C. On the end of someone elses rod
D. None of the above. I can't fish for sea trout but enjoy looking as if I can.

Ripley :D

I meant.......

Guys, I really found them, - maybe a meter below the ceiling, where the aquarium ended. :lol:

...just wanted to say, seatrout probably occupies higher water levels, but I may be completely wrong. So, smart ones, the stage is yours!
