mystery line
 
I'm spooling up some lines to take on a trip and there's one that I thought that I knew what it was, but now I'm not sure.
I have it marked as a "6S", but it looks like WF4F. It's an olive color and not nearly as dark as any of my other sinking lines. I stuck it in the sink and sure enough it sinks
I probably bought it 10 years ago or so and used it once.


Now I'm thinkin' that it has to be an SA WetCell WF5S not a 6S
Does that sound familiar to anyone ? ... that color ?
(or should I just stick it on a 5wt rod and not worry about it :rolleyes:)

Orvis sold the 'Spring Creek' lines in that color round about 1996. Maybe.......

I'd do that.

Edit: Just want to add something. I have a WF7S7 sinking line that is skinnier than my WF5S3 sinking line. Those diameters can be misleading.

Think it's SA wet cell . That's the right color for some years back. Unless I wrapped the wrong used line around the SA plastic holder! Haha maybe?

That's what I'm thinkin' now. A Wet Cell 1. 6wt not 5.... I don't think that they made 5s
This is good, that means that I have a I (one - good to 6') and a II (two- good to 12') in 6wt
It's almost like I planned it that way :rolleyes:
