Default Re: lines and choices

Not knowing how your rod casts ..... it is difficult to give you a recommendation.....howeveer if you are new to flyfishing I would stay away from Sharkskin.... at $100 US it is too expensive for what little additional benefit you might get. I am a RIO fan and have the Selective Trout tht I don't think would be good for lakes.....and the Rio Grande...which I love - but it is for fast roda and is a 5.5 weight. I have never cast the Gold but it sure gets a lot of positive feedback on this and other sites...and is listed as an all purpose line - so if you are going to do lakes, rivers and streams with one line....that might be the way to go.
