So I have been fly fishing for just about 3 weeks now, have got my cast pretty good on my floating line and dry fly, but in a few weeks I will be gearing up to go to a bigger lake and want to either get sink tip line or sinking line, what should I get as a absolute noobie, and what are some do and don't, should I use a strike indicator or just go off feel, I have some wet flies and figured I would try some casts and holly. It was all over the place, is there any tricks to help with this. Any help at all would be much appreciated, thanks

Bc, wish I knew more about sinking lines. I don't use them. Perhaps try someone at a fly shop, or do some more searching on the net.
