Default Sinking Floaters

All floating lines eventually start sinking at the tip due to breaks in the line. If you knot your leader to the fly line and you do not trim and coat the end of the fly line each time it will absorb water. Further, if you look at the end of your line, or better feel the last couple feet of your line, for tiny cracks and abrasions, it will absorb water over time. I use welded loop fly lines and those too will sink over time due to just the abrasions, but much more slowly. Finally, cut two feet off your fly line and try that!
