Question Best Bass Bug Line.

Hello all,

I'm after some advice regarding line choice for casting deer hair bass bugs.
I will be casting 1/0 bugs, some with zonker strip tails.

The the bonefish taper line I currently use is great for casting gurgler syle flies, but realy struggles with the more wind resistant flies.


Thanks in advance

Get a cheap regular weight forward and cut 6 inches off the tip
Then beat the **** out of it.

I just replaced a Wulff Bass taper with an Orvis Hydros. No comparison really. I should have stuck with the Wulff. I'll probably replace the Orvis because there's no reason to accept compromise with all of the lines and tapers out there.
I guess I can't offer a suggestion because I haven't tried them all. I did tell you what didn't work for me though!

Have you not had that bonefish line act a little squirrelly in cold water? Many times a warm water line in cold water will have a tendancy to coil up when chilled.

Yea,I also like the Wulff bass taper line.Picked 1 up this year and it casts very nice.The Wulff SWT saltwater line works good too.Another line to look at is the Rio Clouser.They are nice casters.

For the bigger stuff, I'm a big time fan of SA's Magnum Textured lines. You can really throw some big nasties around with it.
