Does any one have knowledge about Airflo fly line. I am heading to Alasksa for hopefully some big rainbows. I have limited choices on fly fishing equipment in my area. We have a G. Loomis store that carries Airflo. I have fly fished a few times before, but some one always set my equipment for me.
I am one step above a novice, last trip was 3 years ago on the Copper River
We are going to the Kvichak Lodge located on the Kvichak River.
I have a new rod and reel and need some advice on what line to buy.
They suggested the following, but there are to many line choice for me.
"We reccomend 7 to 9 weight rods and also have sinking and floating
lines. 8-12 pound tippet is reccomended atriculating leeches and sculpin
pattern flies, but we also supply the local favorites."
My new equipment:
G. Loomis Native Run GLX 4 piece 10' 8weight
Current 7-8 Combo 59000 3.7" 7WF + 175 YDS. 30#, 8WF + 150 YDS. 30#
Thanks in advance for your help,
