    Default New to S/W Fly fishing

    I am new to fly fishing. I currently have a Pfluerger 5/6wt starter kit. I know it is not the best. But it will have to do for now. It came with line already spooled. What are some options as to a mid priced WF line for my reel. This will be used to fish the creeks for Flounder reds and trout. I am in the NE Fla region. Also open to suggestions for a entry level Saltwater rod and reel.

    If that's what you have to work with, that's what you have to work with. There aren't too many 6 weight tropical saltwater lines. I believe that the Scientific Anglers Mastery Redfish and the Mastery Bonefish lines might be the only ones that I know of in that weight. Scientific Anglers and Rio have price points lines that cost around $40 to $50 that may work for you. Those would be the SA Supra Saltwater and the Rio Mainstream Saltwater. Keep in mind that those start at WF7F, so you would be uplining your rod which may not be a bad thing.

    The forum sponsor, reelflyrod.com, sells a Redington RS4 8 weight saltwater combination that you might want to look at. It sells for $329. Most of my friends who fish for Redfish fish 8 weights.

    Bigcliff who is more in tuned with Redfish than I might have some insight on this.
