    Default How to ID a line?

    hi all,

    I was given a bunch of fly lines and told they are all 4 & 5# lines, DT and WF. None of them are marked, is there an easy way to determine what I have?

    All of these will be given to charity so I would like to label them first.
    Thanks for any help.

    You have to weigh the first 30 feet and use the chart beow.


    Regards,

    Thanks Silver. Lucky me I have a scale that should work for this. Is there a way to tell if the line is WF or DT?

    Thanks!

    Yes. Front of the line is to the left side of this image.



    A WF line is thin on the front end, gets thicker and then gets thinner all the way to the back end.

    A DT line is thin on both ends and gets thicker in the middle.
