I have an Orvis Silver Label WF 4wt. on mine. Works fine and since they discontinued it, you can often find them cheap.

Hi Fishingflies,

It makes a big difference how you are going to be using the line. If cost is a concern then I suggest the Allen Weight Forward floating fly line. A lot of our members use this line and I haven't heard any complaints. You won't find a better price. Tell Justin you are a NAFFF member.

If you are looking for a specialty or performance line there are some good choices from RIO and Scientific Anglers. We would need to know your application to make recommendations.

Frank

Hmmm... I thought that I responded to this thread. Here we go anyways.

General Purpose - Scientific Anglers Mastery Trout, Rio Gold

Presentation - Scientific Anglers Mastery XPS, Rio Trout LT

All these lines have standard weight heads. They would be good fits for your medium fast rod.
