    Default New floating flyline

    I have a Hardy Jet #6 rod and have been using a Mike Evans #7/8 floating Twin trout line which now needs replacing. Folk seem to say that my casting hasn't been too bad.

    I know that is overloaded but it seems to have caught me fish on our 20 acre lake. Maybe the Evans #6/7 would be better. Also don't want to spend more than £40.

    The range out there is bewildering and I don't understand half the technical speak; so I have to decide whether to stick with what I know or try something different - then what?

    I do have a Barrio #6 weight line that I shall try but ...... It does seem that overloading a bit seems to suit my style especially when not dry fly when I would use the Barrio.

    Help please.

    I think you'll find the #6 line will be fine. A friend had a Jet #5 and fished a GT90 of the same weight.
    It was a very nice set up.

    Hi Val if you go along the Maxcatch route don't forget to use the Coupon Code Hugo30 this will give you 30% discount bringing the price of their Real Gold line down to just over £8 .

    is the Maxfish10 coupon still working - gives a straight £7 off the order total (i think)

    I've ordered 2 of their lines - bit of a wait though

    Bario Lines are first class only, used them for 5 or 6 years now

    If you want to 'over-line' your #6wt rod try a #6wt SLX as it's really a #7wt. Otherwise a Barrio GT 90 #6wt is the way to go.

    Hadn't heard of the SLX, interesting description. Is it better than the GT90?
