Default How do you choose which fly line to use??

Good Day to All,

Well spring is approaching rapidly & just wondered if you need
a new fly line how do you choose which to purchase ? Do you
go with what you used before ? Do you try new products ? Do
you strictly go on what the fly shop owner recommends ? What
are your thoughts ?

( I was sad to see the "ruff" response to a simple reply on the
Cortland Sylk subject. Everyone has there opinion & it should
be respected. I have never seen that on this forum & hope to
not see it again. I have always enjoyed the advice & shared
experiences this forum has provided. I'm sorry we lost a
contributor. )

Thanks,
Tie One On

Stick to thec top brands and match the size and type to your equipment and fishing style. Floating for dry and general use....sinking tip for nymphing. Shooting heads for distance. For me I try to keep it simple.

Hi tie one on,

I agree with your thoughts.

You can't go wrong with the Mastery series of Scientific Anglers lines. Some people like the Peach series of lines from Cortland. I have only used the Cortland Saltwater line. If I was buying today I would take a good look at the new REO lines with Agent X. I have not tried one but they claim the tip will float forever. Any of the sinking lines that have a Graduated-Density sink rate is a good choice for a sinking line.
