  • Weight forward taper
  • Shorter body
  • Efficiently handles air-resistant bug or weighted sub-surface flies
  • Length: 90'

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'.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by ??? 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. June 11, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Weight forward fly line. This line works as advertised, cast easily. Even with long cast. June 4, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by decent this line is very cheap price wise its a great starter line it shoots very well but my only complaint would be hat it generates very slow line speeds August 2, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. June 27, 2011

A: 
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.

A: 
No, it doesn't. You can create one, as I did, with fluorocarbon (won't fail in the sun like nylon/monofilament line) and a nail knot tool.

My experience with the slip-on loops and many factory welded loops is all bad. I cut 'em all off and make my own.

A: 
Depends on the rod - if it's fast, then you might use a 6wt (if it's available).

I'm using an 8wt on a fast, 9'-6" rod rated a 7/8wt.

A: 
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.
