Default Floating Flyline - Sage Three RPL+

Good evening

I am looking for advice on a replacement floating line for my Sage Three RPL+ 690. My Rio line died last night after 10 years of faithful fish tugging.

I fish primarily stillwater here in BC with floating line with 12 foot leader, chironomid and strike indicator. i built the rod myself from blanks almost 18 years ago and it still fishes like a champ. Any advice, including suggested weight, would be great.

In addition, I have a creamy white Sage rod tube with a missing cap. Any leads on replacement caps would be an added bonus.

Cheers

If you got 10 years out of the RIO that ought to be endorsement enough to get another RIO. That is an exceptional length of service.

I fished several times last week with the new LOOP USA lines, rods and reels and was impressed by all, especially the lines. With their fast rods and incredible lines I will be looking seriously at them going forward.

Also, don't forget the lines from Allen Flyfishing a corporate member of this site. I have used their lines and love them as much as any I've tried in the past.

Again, if the RIO lasted as long as it did I would look at getting another.

Kelly.
