Question about switch lines
Still learning here so bear with me. My limited knowledge comes from single handed trout rods. I'm shopping for my first double hander and I think I want a switch rod for where I fish most of the time. Now I'm on to reels and lines.
Ideally I'd like to have a second or third spool to make line selection quick and simple depending on the conditions. It seems there are one-piece lines (full floating and nymphing/indicator lines) and sectional lines (shooting line, shooting heads, MOW tips, etc.). Does this seem right?
If this is the case, and I was Richie Rich, I could have one spool set up with shooting line/head, a second for indicator fishing and a third with a full floating line.
Skating dries... can this be done with a scandi shooting head and a float tip, or is a one piece floating line more realistic?
