Scientific Anglers® Lefty Kreh Signature Series Fly Line
I recently purchased this as part of my first and only fly outfit I own back in June. Though I haven't been fly fishing for long, I have gained enough knowledge through research in books and on websites to understand the qualities of a good fly line. This line casts fairly well overhead with a roll cast being possible but deliberately short. Also, this line can quickly develop memory if left unused for too long, and it becomes apparent not so much in casting where you end up with slightly more slack line on the water that can be stripped out, but in the neat, small coils formed in unused line at your feet. The line floats fairly well, but the first two inches or so can be dragged down a little if using any fly that sinks. All in all, a fairly good line for a beginner for the price.

WF 5x is fantastic
This just came in this morning and you know how it is. Ya gotta try it out! This line performs very well. I'm not that experienced of a fly fisherman as my rod and reel were purchased old and was pre strung. With this new line my cast are way more excellent, much farther and much more precise. I first tried it in the yard and can pop bees off of clover flowers in the 35 yrd range now were before it was just sort of close.
In the water this floated perfectly and drifted well. The willow color is fantastic and blends well with my environment. The WF design handles great and can cast quite far, this is a very supple line.
I paired this floating line WF -5X with 25 yrds of white river magibraid #153 20 lb backing and a 9 ft tippet of 4x orvis mirage.

This line performs well and is a great value. I especially like the willow color. Our lakes here in the Arizona desert are normally extremely clear, and this color is a more subtle and natural presentation for wary bass, stripers, and sunfish.
