A Few Words About Flylines – Flylines come in line weight sizes that directly correspond to the weight (size) of the rod. Line choices include everything from special coatings for salt water to clear tips for stealth. It is important to consider these options when choosing the right flyline.
Although a flyline may not be as important as the rod that moves it, a good flyline can help to improve casting distance and accuracy. With modern ‘slick’ coatings that do not degrade under harsh conditions, today’s flylines come in different sizes (length) and colors. It is important that the flyline be not only the correct line weight, but the right taper, density and color for the angling environment.
