Which line for a slow rod?
« on: August 27, 2017, 20:58:40 PM »
I'm looking for a new line for my 4pc 9' 5wt Vision Cult rod. The action of this rod is rather soft. It will be used mainly for small river trout and grayling in Europe with a Daiwa Lochmore fly reel by a fairly beginner caster, with only a limited fishing experience. Could you please give any recommendation for the optimal Barrio fly fine to choose under these circumstances?

Hi Akos ...... welcome to the forum :z16

All the lines in the range will suit you well, but from what you describe, I think the Mallard WF5F would be a good choice.

Best wishes
Mike
