I would like to put a striper on my fly rod this year, usually tossed bait or hardware in the salt and kept the fly rods for fresh water. I understand I should have either an intermediate or sink tip fly line or both. For the sink tip is there one ips rate that is better than another? I?ll be fishing the beach and the back bays. And is there one manufacture that is better casting and handling in the cold weather than the rest, or ones to stay away from? Thanks for your help.
