Ok. Posted about weighted flies earlier. I am used to feeling bottom in the winter months with a heavily weighted fly. I like this because I rarely loose a fly,( unlees I am just way too heavy), and I know if im making contact once and a while. Im in the zone for inactive or sliwer fish. A lot of guys are telling me to go lightly weighted and use the tip. I have tried this quite a bit and I have found that I feel I am lost in knowing if or where I am in the water column. I am very used to feeling bottom with my line when it is cold out. I do have good sucess with this meathod as I have been using it for a while. I would like some more input on what weight of tips to use and how to fish them so I can tell when I am clise to bottom but not snagging.
