The bride bought us tickets to the 2013 Fly Fishing Film Tour at the local McMenamin's brew pub (great places by the way) tonight and ended up winning a free Scientific Anglers fly line (she doesn't fish, she just indulges my addiction). I have fished mostly Rio Gold and Wulff TT lines. Probably looking at a 4 or 5 wt WF (Trout or Trout Stalker?) or maybe a streamer or steelhead line. Suggestions? BTW, the show was great, so was the beer!
June will be 10 years sobriety for me, I grew up in a good Irish family where it's all or nothing so I had to go with nothing.
I went to school at University of Oregon and one of my favorite memories was I would drive from Eugene to the coast and play golf the drive up the coast to yachats Oregon and spend the evening with my grandma. I would drive back to Eugene and always hit the Mcmenamins for several jars of Ruby Ale. Man I was broke in college but they had the best micro brews ever.
Anyway your original question SA line, just decide what rod it is going on. Fast or med fast, and size
I have the GPX on my Orvis Hydros 6wt and Zaxis 4wt. I put the trout stalker on all my predominat dry fly rods 3 & 4 wts.
Cletus, I agree with comeonavs, decide which rod (rods) that you want to use it on. I find my rods cast well with the RIO Gold (or SA Trout) in the weight specified by the rod manufacturer. The only exception is my 4wt. VXP. It likes a SA GXP (1/2 wt. heavier) to cast better. The owner of my local outfitter tells me that he over-lines all of his rods. That's his opinion. Opinions will vary here due to personal preference.
If you saw my line locker, you’d know that having my choice of any line that S.A. makes, is like offering a fat kid a cookie.
So I’ll have to disqualify myself from giving you advice on this one. Because If it were me, I’d probably go to their line spec pages and pick some ethereal line for a light outfit or something so far off the charts wicked, that it would put a permanent set in a nine weight.
