An ordinary 82-90-foot double taper...
...Can be converted into a versatile spey line: Cut off most of one end's taper; add a loop for sinktips and the cut-off tip. At the remaining tapered tip, add an attachment loop. You can pull this line off the reel, detach it from the large loop in the backing, rewind it, reversed, onto the reel in about two minutes and fish an intact floating tip. Or, splice some running line onto the tapered tip, and you have a tip line longer than you can cast.
