    It's ALIVE again! - 5/12/2015

    This line brought a very old #7 rod back to life. The slight additional weight was the trick, where a #8 was too much! Just what the doctor ordered.

    Not just for beginners - 4/24/2015
    By: from Fort Worth, TX

    They market this line for beginners because it is a little over weighted but, I think that sells this line short. The first GREAT thing I noticed about it is how supple it is. I have had lines by other companies and they just seem heavy and stiff. This line really falls limp and moves the the guides easy. The over weight nature of this line attracted because my 5wt rod really seemed more a 5/6 wt and quite stiff. That little extra of this line gives it a nice balance. The welded loop is great, makes things so much neater and smoother. Lastly the price! I usually try and stick to this price point for lines and this is the best one yet. No compromise here.

    This is a great fly line for the entry level fly fisher. It helps the novice overcome basic problems, thus giving more confidence later.

    solid - 1/1/2015

    Wonderful, I'm Just getting into fly fishing for the first time and I ordered the Clearwater combo on a friends advice, without knowing a thing about casting I opened it and went straight to the yard in the middle of winter and was casting semi effective in no time, with a little help from my friend. When I ordered the combo I made a mistake on my shipping address when I entered it online and one quick call and they fixed it in seconds. Wonderful customer service. anxious for the spring. The Fly Line seems to do very well.

    Good Bass Line - 12/24/2014

    This came installed on my Clearwater 8 wt 10' outfit, along with the Clearwater IV LA reel. It has the weight and authority to handle large bass bugs and streamers well even in windy conditions. Can also handle smaller flies with a modicum of delicacy. Excellent mid-level line that I will happily use. Interested to try the bass bug line but until then I am very satisfied with the performance of this line. MInimal coil.
