Rattle reel line

Wondering what you guys are spooling your rattle reels with? Typically I have used the plastic coated line and then a flouro leader on the end of that but I am having trouble finding any of the plastic line that I used to use.

Thanks

look for sinking fly line online, there are a few places you can get it for pretty cheap.

Tons of cheap sinking fly line on eBay as well. The more expensive stuff is expensive due to the precision needed to create the proper tapers to make it easier to cast. This obviously isn't a concern if you're using it on a rattle reel.

You'd want a level taper line as most fly lines are weight forward (WF). Those marketed as "running lines" will give you what you want. If you do end up with WF, just spool it onto the rattle reel the same way it is spooled onto the reel it arrives on. WF lines have a thicker section near the tip (so closest to the spool it comes on) that helps with casting. You wouldn't want that end near your bait, so you'd want to spool it so it's on the opposite end.

Plastic coated line shines outside when temps are below zero on a hand line or tip ups.If your above freezing (in fishouse)I like to use cheapie dacron black or green line.Easy to hand line in and with white walls easy to see line movement (during daylight)hours.I use 6 pound mono/fluorocarbon (6 foot or so),swivel and then the lure.Million ways to rig million to present said rig.Think ice have fun!!!!!!!!c63
