Default Best Line Choice for my Setup

I (because I have the hoarding issues everyone else here does) bought 2 rods over the holidays I did not need. The first is a 9 1/2 foot 6 wt BVK, the other a 10 foot 4 wt Reddington Hydrogen. As a novice did I need to add 2 rods...NO. Now comes the fun part of choosing the line for the BVK.

I think I will be using it for bass as well as trout where I may fish with a friend. That being said, I was looking at some Rio line and wondering what I should choose. My question is... do I get a WF trout line or a Bass line?

BVK likes an aggressive slightly heavy line so a RIO Perception might be fine for both trout and bass.

Default Re: Best Line Choice for my Setup

Ive only fished a BVK once and really liked it. Was throwing a SA Titan taper, and liked that line/taper so much I bought it for myself to fish on my Redington Vice (another budget friendly fast action rod) and it casts great.
