    I'm only about a year into 2wts and only have the one line that's on my reel. It's a Wulff triangle taper and seems to work good. Roll cast great and were I fish that rod, a good roll cast is a must.

    Best choice ?,,I wouldn't really know. But it does work good.

    I use an Orvis Superfine for dry fly work and find it very good to use with both steffan glass and softer graphites

    I have a old Scott "G" Series that I just got and it came with hardy WF-2-F line and it casts great. Don't know if they still make it but it does fish very nice. I also just got, today' an Orvis Wonderline WF2I Gen 3 I am going to try for fishing deeper this winter. Good luck!

    I've got some AirFlo Super-Dri Elite WF2F coming for a rod that is still in production stages. There doesn't seem to be many 2wt lines available.

    I believe your line choice will be good, I've had more of the SA. lines than I can remember and they have always been just fine regardless of the rod I purchased them for. It is only since I began using 2 hand rods that I've ventured into the realm of what I consider exotics in fly lines. For those rods I have a collection of SA. Carron - Ian Gordon and Rio lines. To think that when I got that first rod I said "I'm not going to do what I've done with single hand rods". By that I meant that I would not end up with a stack of rods.............. Oops.

    At this time I believe that almost all my lines from 3 - 9 weight that are on reels are Scientific Angler Mastery lines and they are great.

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    You never heard it from me ...... get a real silk line. Delicate as a new born Baby in your hands.

    I purchased my first two weight this spring and have been extremely pleased with the Cabelas prestige plus line that I got on sale. It has a welded loop on front and the WF I got lets me roll cast well and make some pretty decent distance.
