For those who don't want to fish a clear line, the Monic Backcountry line is a well-kept secret. It casts and handles superbly and has become my number one line for backcountry (Gulfside) fishing. It's a pale blue color. The new sinktip intermediates, which have only 9-10' of clear sinktip are much better than what we used to have. I use the Rio and love it. My buddy fishes the Cortland and he loves that line. The very short intermediate tip is simply designed to get below the floating grass. The fly is maybe only a few inches lower in the water than with a floating line. I, too, had quit using them for many years until these new ones came out a couple of years ago.
