For general use a Scientific Anglers Mastery is hard to beat, I like DT lines.

I am a Rio fan, so I vote a Rio Gold or Rio Grande, depending on how fast your rod is.

I have several 4 and 5 wt rods with lines from SA and Rio to match. I try 2 or 3 lines on each rod and lately always seem to end up using the Rio Gold.

I recently bought some Hook & Hackle Classic for $25(on sale) in DT5.. Works great... lines are made by Cortland and are believed to be the Classic 444 peach lines in an olive color
