Wow that sounds expensive. The cost of fly fishing certainly is what is certainly what is killing the popularity of fly fishing. I cant justify spending more than 40 dollars on a fly line, let alone spending big money on lots of different fly lines just to get the right line for my rod.
I probably have the wrong fly line for all 3 of my rods(none of which was over 200 dollars), but i dont have the money to try and find the right line for my rod.
From another thread:
This is not killing fly fishing

The cost is.
