Efficiently handles air-resistant bug or weighted sub-surface flies
Rugged weight forward taper is designed with a shorter body, enabling the angler to completely fish out the cast, then quickly load and deliver the next one. Efficiently handles large, air-resistant bugs or weighted sub-surface flies. Fish the nastiest cover while your buddy at the other end of the boat babies his ''high-dollar'' line. Color: Yellow. Length: 90'.

Seems like it may be suited for a longer flyrod than mine. It casts ok but its not spectacular. Its definately a great value and seems durable. Im using the heat flyrod with it.

This line works as advertised, cast easily. Even with long cast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DerrysDad What a steal!
This is my first purchase of a fly line from your company. You lost me as a customer for a few years when I switched over to Fly Fishing from Gear.
I haven't yet fished the line - conditions for its use haven't yet developed - but I intend to try this weekend. CARP. On the Columbia (still high from record spring runoff). I DID line up my 7wt and throw the line in the park and it handles well and shoots like a rocket! I am extremely pleased - money well spent (so far!) Hope it lasts as good as it looks.

That would be determined by what your are fishing for. For Trout size 5 or maybe 4. for a average fish size 6 or bigger bass size 7 and if you fish any for large Chinook size I say at least a size 8. Line is available from the smaller sizes up to 12 for big salt water fish.
With any weight rod, the generally accepted idea is to only use the weight line that is the same as the rod or go up 1 in line weight. So, for your 5wt., only use a 5wt or a 6wt. Since this line stars at a 7 weight, it seems logical to not use this on a 5 weight. It is possible to overload a rod and cause the rod to break by using the wrong line weight.
