Fly Line Thoughts
Good morning all. Just thought I'd share this lovely little stream photo with you. All of that beautiful green on this cold rainy February day. I have not fished in in about two weeks and I must say it did not bother me to much. But today I feel like I could do with a few hours out and about but that's not going to happen for a few days more. But I have a few observations to share with you concerning fly lines. I am not one to buy the top of the line when it comes to fly lines. Fishing small streams does not require a fly line in the 100.00 range. The amount of fishing I do yearly, well weekly that is is about 4-5 days. So a year to a year and a half is a long time for my fly lines. I guess if I took the time to maintain them properly I might get a little longer life out of them.
Being in the market for a new line I picked up a couple of lines on the internet. This one is the Piscifun Sword series. It's a WF3 floating line. I've been using this line for about a month and it has been OK. It's cost was 25.00.
This one is a Rio Mainstream series Trout. It's a WF3 floating. I have never fished Rio lines and I'm excited to try this one soon. This line cost 39.00.
