9ft4wt there is a difference in buoyancy in fresh to saltwater lines. As in saltwater lines don't always float in fresh water due to the density of saltwater being higher. Now an intermediate line I don't know if there would be a difference other then sink rate slightly.

Woody,

Thanks for the offer; I may just take you up on that! I have an 8wt rod that is without line, so I'll see what I can scrounge up in the meantime to get me on the bass.

My wishes for this summer's fly fishing trip is to have fun, not get hurt, learn a few things and hopefully catch a few fish!
