How To Fish An Intermediate Line In A Lake

In this episode of RIO’s “How To Fly Fish” series, Simon Gawesworth talks about fishing intermediate lines in a lake. The intermediate line should be the second line density every lake angler should buy (after a floating line), but few anglers know how to fish them, or the nuances behind using them.

Simon explains what an intermediate line is, talks about when to use a clear versus a “camo” intermediate line, as well as discussing the sink rate that makes the line an “intermediate”. In this video, packed with tips for the lake angler, Simon also shows how to fish the “washing line” and the “hang”, and runs through a couple of excellent tips that, if you are new to fishing intermediate lines, will really help your day.
