As you know I use the same rod in a 3# and I put an Orvis Trout WF3 through it. Works very well. A bit pricy, but if you wait a while I would think that Orvis will do one of their "Spend £xx and get £25 off" deals before too long.

Look at the John Norris website. They will have some very good in house lines at keen prices. Perfectly good lines from "name" makers at a quarter of the price. Buy two and still save 50% !!!!

Wychwood Connect Featherdown is a nice line - £30 should get you one - they are a nice Olive colour.
