cheap flyline????

Recommended Posts

I own a flyrod and reel, and want to start learning how to flyfish(why not, i do everything else) but when searching for line on the net found really high prices. Is there any cheap fly line to be had?

When I first started, I used some Berkley double taper line I had found clearanced at Kmart for 7$. It was good enough to get started with. Seems to me I have seen another cheap line clearanced at Wallyworld, "Crystal springs" or something close to that, for like 12$.

lunker, yes you can buy some fly lines for under 15 bucks but i can tell you from expierence that you would be much better off investing a few extra bucks. fly line is very important-a good fly line shoots through your guides better, has much less memory in cooler weather (which can be very important in this region) stays cleaner, and will be worth your investment. rio has good line, orvis puts out a wonder line that is prettty good cortland and scientific angler are also pretty reputable makers. WF would be a good choice, its a little easier to cast, floating line would also be a good starting line, you can fish the surface and nymph so its pretty versatile. good luck lunker i hope this info was helpful

    • Had to go back and see if it was you that posted this one: 😀
    • World famous. Browned pork, Italian seasoning, onions, garlic. Then hash browns with cheese.
    • Season is young yet fellas, hopefully it stays dry for a while, we ran into lots of water and crops as well. The kid dropped the only rooster we saw on Saturday , lots of hens though. The neighbor out that away saw a small brood of chicks 2 weeks ago, real late hatch but hopefully they came out ok in the rain last week.
    • Spent a week grouse hunting around Grand Rapids. Left on Saturday Oct 13 because I tired of running into Ruffed Grouse Society yahoos using Minnesota birds to bring in $$$ so they can buy more white pickups with Ruffed Grouse Society painted on the side driven by PHD's that are clueless as to why there was such a disparity between the 2017 drumming count and the actual number of birds on the ground. Saw or heard a total of 12 grouse and 7 woodcock for the week. My experience was the same as knoppers.   
    • Saw nothing yesterday. Too many crops and too much water everywhere.
    • I thought that was what it was.   Thanks for the ID.
    • yea they eat up the acorns. I have soo many acorns, the tree rats cannot put a dent in them.
    • I have always liked the blue jays also. SO much food here they all get along pretty well. 
    • parise looks very slow out there, he was terrible in OT. hopefully the wild can turn this poor play around soon.
    • OK I am now a fan of blue jays. had a woodpecker, a larger one, not the downy on my house, it pecked a few times, I pounded on the wall it flew off into the tree, as I watched it through the window, it landed on the side of the garage ready to go to business, and a blue jay flew at it and chased it off, it happened two times, then the woodpecker flew off. I also had a blue jay chase off bees, they made a paper nest on my eaves in one day, I watched a blue jay land on it, and jump around, the bees would come out, the jay would fly off. then the jay repeated this numerous times until the nest fell off, bees left.
