I need a new fly line

Recommended Posts

Time to replace my saltwater line  -- 8 weight.   What do you use and like ?  So many choices and new ones on the market too.  What do you think ?

Airflo all the way!   Most, if not all, of their Striper lines utilize a power core instead of a mono core and seem to tangle less.  Also, Airflo uses polyurethane coatings instead of PVC.  Great longevity and strong performance.  Their intermediate Striper Line is pretty sweet- definitely my choice among all the intermediate lines.

I will agree on there intermediate line but I tend to use rio for my sink tips. Salt lines seem to wear quicker but is what it is to me.

Without knowing more about where you're fishing, if you're fishing out of a boat, what type of flies you're throwing, etc. I'd generically recommend a short head intermediate line. Rio Outbound short, SA Titan taper, Airflo Sniper, etc.
