You may not be able to outright but a pink or purple line, but you can have one nevertheless. Buy a white line and dye it. Snowbee makes a few white lines, and I am not sure, but Trevor Morgan may make a floating single hand line that's white. I own some of his spey lines with white heads. The snowbee link is here;
Fly Lines

Trevor Morgan link here;

If you need information on how to dye lines just let me know.

There are a few methods out there. This is Borgers;

Be very careful how long you leave the line in, and how hot the dye is. Fly line will melt.

Justin at Allen Fly Fishing used to have some white lines available. With his prices you could buy two or three in case the first one doesnt turn out right. Then you both could have pink lines.....:D

guys, If you think its a good idea to get your significant other into fly fishing remember that that may be your only time to be sane.......:D Im not so sure how I feel about owning a pink rod, something just seems wrong.

If you find a pink 3 or 4 wt blank, let me know. My granddaughter would love it. She's 4 & already has the pink Dora Rod, a pink 22 & now if I could find it a pink rod, pink dyed flyline & pink reel would be great for her 5th birthday..
