That is why they call them toe rails lol... I also use a large beach towel(the one with the girls in thongs) get it wet and lay it on the deck,the flyline will "stick" to it. helps a little.

the toe rails are worthless, I am ready to have them taken off. The boat looks a lot nicer with them off.

Pretty much agree with Jason. Got them on my 16 HB Waterman. Little wind. Don't need them. Over 10mph. line blows over them. Although, they have stopped my phone a time or two.

Personally, I think they look cool. To me they don't destroy the lines of the hull. But I usually use a stripping basket.

Oh yeah, WELCOME.

Probably the best use is as a reminder that you are getting too close to the Wet Portion of the skiff. Get a Line Tamer Stripping Basket (approx) $200.00 great function & portable, (you can take it on your non-fly fishing buddy's boat) and real easy to store when not in use and as a bonus great to hold an extra rod or rolled maps when cruising . The best thing is no installation and no deck screw holes

I am sure their original purpose was to warn a concentrating caster to stop when he got to the end of his skiff not to actually contain stripped fly line

Agree with the utility of the rails. However if you throw a cast net once in awhile they are nice to brace your foot against when you throw.

Well u know when relatives come in from out of town who don't know one end of a flystick from the other. U gotta use live bait with them unless u want a trip to the ER to get the fly out of ur ear.
