    Longlines, but to be honest, after reading what some of the layout guys have posted here recently, I'm thinking we'll try some singles mixed in this fall.

    Long lines...I do not take my blocks off but just store them in those tan collapsible leaf bags. I think this is much quicker then snapping long line clips on and off. Instead of throwing in some weighted singles...I will vary my drop line off two or three decoys to around 3 or 4 feet which will then float out of the "Straight line" formation. Seems to give the spread a better look. I go 9' between the decoys and then around 30' on each end for the weight attachment or an extension line if needed. Peace Out HOLYSTEEL

    im with the majority, longlines and fill in with singles. I tried making doubles with one line, but it seemed to be alot more trouble than it is worth

    All of my cork bluebills and Blacklabdecoys bluebills are longlined. #120 tarred twisted line from Memphis Net And Twine. 5" longline clips from Atagulf.

    I have 6 ringers all cork that are singles.
    Four buffie corkers that are singles.

    What do you guys use for a mother line, and what kind of anchor? For the little I have done it, we use just decoy line with some small clips fastened to the line. I want to re-do all of it. Also should there be a line from the decoy to the mother line, and what is a good clip to use. I have some old sash weights for the anchor. Once I get a little more than 4 doz. decoys I would like to do it a LOT more. Going to get a layout this off season too. Thanks in advance.
