Line for bamboo rod
 
I just picked up my first bamboo rod. It's a 6'6" 3 wt. I'm wondering what kind of line to use. Should I be looking at DT?

I'll suggest Cortland Sylk 444. DT is more popular with the boo and glass crowd.

Either a DT or a Wulff Long belly.

I have found that either the Cortland Sylk DT or the SAGE Quiet Taper DT lines work very well on my Granger 8040 & Payne 100..

I have also read that some of the bamboo fans have found the Rio Trout LT lines to be pretty suitable (in the DT format of course).
