Re: Will Abel Creek 1 LA hold a WF 4wt line?
A WF4F can fit on an Abel Creek 1 LA. I have spooled one up. I never paid attention on how much 20 pound backing was put on, but if I guessed, it was about 30 yards. Keep in mind that line can be cut off the back end of the fly line if need be.
The Creek 1 LA balances well on short 4 weights.
I use a Creek 2 LA on a 9 foot 4 weight. It balances just fine.
