Re: Discount line sources
A good place to check periodically is the 'sale' areas on major websites be they Orvis, or Cabelas, or whatever. Often the popular sizes are sold quickly leaving less used line weights but if you check periodically you can find a deal. Also fly shop closeouts can have some great deals as well as sierra trading post from time to time. Check amazon too, haven't found the 'top shelf' lines at incredible prices, but some nice discounts on good lines. The of course, ebay. Can find new lines at good prices. Be sure to check seller's feedback scores. Some fly shops or companies sell closeout products on ebay. When I find sellers I like I save them and get periodic emails with new products they've listed.
