Default troutlet.com

hey guys, just wondering what you guys think of this website.

i was looking for a reel and line and they have the okuma SLV and lefty kreh fly line for like 5 bucks less than any other site.

im just wondering if they are a good site because there prices are a little low and they dont sell any tippet. that just seems a little suspicous to me.

Your shipping will make up that $5. For the SLV, check on ebay. Gremlin Fishing has them for $38 starting bids. I bought one for $38+8 shipping.

I've been buying my SLV reels from Fisherman's Headquarters. He's not
only an ebay dealer: he has an actual fishing shop, is an authorized Okuma
dealer, and has about the lowest prices on ebay.

Hi Eagles,

Adding the tippet to the leader will work fine. It'll save your leader material and you'll be able to customize the length of your line for specific flies and/or situations. This has been my approach as I'm learning the in's and out's of flyfishing, it's worked out well for me so far this year...

I wish I had seen that before I just placed an order for Scientific Anglers Headstart line. It is cheaper. I just saw this troutlet.com while searching for something else. I hope they continue to sell it at that price, because I will be ordering line for my teenage son soon.
