Leader on flyline

One way of attaching the leader to the fly line is using a nailless nail not.

Melvin,

Is the whole line sinking except the tip or is the tip sinking? My guess is the latter.

If it's a floating line, a problem could be that it's soaking up water. It might be cracked, permanently drenched or simply dirty. Try cleaning it, drying it thoroughly and treating it with a line conditioner. If it still sinks, try some floatant like Mucelin or silicone on the tip, and if that doesn't help, you simply have a sink tip line. Use it as such and buy a new floating line.

I CANNOT FIGURE OUT WHY MY FLY LINE IS SINKING 3FT FROM MY LEADER.

This has been really really helpful for me. I'm making the switch over from coarse fishing to fly and hadn't got a clue what I was doing. Thankyou so much
