Default Rio nymph line

Just got a phenomenal deal on some rio nymph 6 weight line. I primarily throw buggers and such at smallies but also some drys at brown trout once in a while. A guy at the local fly shop said it should work well for the drys as well as my mastry GPX and by looking at the taper i think it should too. Any opinions?

I'm sure you can throw a dry with the line, but the question is how will the presentation be? The Rio Nymph Line is very head heavy and has a short front taper, so it can turn over hardware (indo-bobber, weights - split shot or putty, and flies). A line with a longer front taper (like Rio Presentation LT, SA Mastery Trout or XPS) will present a dry fly much more gently. Your Mastery GPX will present a dry fly better since its front taper is longer than the Nymph line (almost double the length).

Rio Nymph is a fine nymping line. With a dry the presentation it leaves a bit to be desired. The front end wobbles quite a bit and the splash down is rather harsh.
It does roll cast junk like shot and indicators quite nicely
