We spend a lot of time talking about rods and casting performance. But last week in the Bahamas reminded me that the line you use is critically important to the total casting equation. It makes no sense if you have a fancy rod, only to string it up with a shabby fly line. In fact, the right line can add 10 feet or more to an old rod. You do the math... add $25 to a fly line purchase, or drop a few bills extra for a fast-action casting stick? Point is, you wouldn't shoot cheap arrows with a supercharged bow, and you wouldn't
put bad gas in a sports car. Trust me... a little extra focus on fly line selection can enhance your season.
