Default Re: Newbie who needs fly line recs

I will offer a differing opinion and say that the IMX rods I have fished were more towards the fast side versus the moderate. From my time working in a fly shop, teaching casting and guiding I would recommend a SA Textured GPX in WF5. As a new caster I really thing that the GPX line will provide good feedback of the rod loading without overloading the rod. It will also serve you well in shooting line and casting the bulkier warmwater flies. Yes, this line is more costly than some but I believe its performance justifies the price. Certainly if you have a chance try a couple lines to feel the difference or have a shop owner cast the lines on the rod and provide an opinion. But overall I think as you learn the cast the you will like the line as well as when you become more experienced.
