Sometimes you just can't see the line easily so maybe all of the contrasting colors will fix that.
I use Optic Orange lines for that now but wear and tear makes them look like they're colored in parking lot/convention floor crud camo.

Very good idea!

Very nice! An. 8 wt line for SW with the first 12 ' a B24 and the running line a B32! I can see a lot if other great combos but that would work well for me! It would be interesting as well to do two shades of red or orange as an indicator for a floating steelhead line! Great idea and I'm sure the way some of these guys like certain colors you guys will do great with them!!

Thanks so much! Bg32 has been a very popular choice so far. People are ordering some very cool looking fly lines!

Maybe something that is a "special edition" and listed alongside a charity.

I am new to this but I like WR 16 for the first 10' and G72 for the rest of it. Great web site. Very interesting.

Nice idea with the swatches (not see this idea anywhere else).


CR12 for first 12, then BG33 for the rest

Awesome Idea!

I think YG9, then CR13, then YOP10.

All the best colors of my favourite fly - the wooly bugger
