What Flyline

Postby cggoldens » Tue Sep 13, 2016 5:30 pm

I'll be fishing Harkers next month for Albies. Plan on fishing a clear intermediate. Do I need Tropical or cold water line?

good question--who knows what the water temps will be--- but with that said i use the RIO OBS Tropical Intermediate or Floater until November. I do not think a clear line makes any difference what so ever but the seem to be the trend.

Rio has a new line out call the Coastal Quick Shooter and Coastal Quick Shooter XP and they have a wider range of water temps than the OBS. They are not quite as heavy as the OBS. I have not fished them yet, ours are in the mail headed this way.

What he said. Rio has a good selection of quality lines.
