A floating head can be an extremely useful tool for the right circumstances. Poppers and crease flies on the delta is probably what most people have in mind when they think of big rods and dry lines for California. Ironically sometimes a floating line allows for fishing subsurface patterns in close to shore or keying in on those fish feeding just below the surface on baitfish like we see all too often in Richardson Bay.
Shooting heads are one of the most versatile line systems one can fish. Shooting heads are great for casting long distances. Shooting heads are perfect for fishing saltwater and freshwater.
