Hi to all,

Here is a line diagram from RIO. It has a very interesting taper. I can see where GRN is concerned with casting big wind resistant flies. I can see also that it could give a very delicate delivery with smaller flies. It seems to me this may be a very good line for short cast. That 7wt body would load your tip pretty quick on 25' cast. How does this line roll cast? It looks like that big body would give good momentum to turn over the tip.

RIO is doing some good things with their line designs.

Frank

All I can tell you Frank, is I bought some from BS Flies last year on my outing to Idaho. Went to MACK's INN stretch and it loads for short cast (me being one that starts off right in front and works out so as not to scare the fish away) But, under the Bridge I was do 70' casts with ease. It shoots like a rocket. And I was using #8 weighted woolly's. It is like there is weight at the end of the line pulling. But it is so easy to mend.

Hi Joni,

I would expect it to mend well with that big body on the fly line. How about roll casting? I think it should be super based on the design. I have never used one but it looks like a pretty good line.

Frank
