_"Vintage fly tackle is always interesting, and fly lines are no exception. You've got a classic 1950s fly line from the Newton Line Company, a firm founded in 1909 in Homer, New York by D.D. Newton. Their "Ghost" brand nylon fly line came at the beginning of the nylon revolution, which saw silk and linen fishing lines replaced completely by nylon following World War II. Newton was one of the most impressive advertisers, and they launched their Ghost brand around 1950 with a big splash that included numerous full-page ads in sporting magazines. Your fly line is worth around $10-$20 in the box, and with some care can still be used today (it's a Size D line which is equivalent to today's 6 Weight).
