It's still hard to beat the Cortland 444 Peach.

Good Luck,

Unless you hate it, which some of us do. I ended up giving mine away it was so bad.

I actually like the cheaper Cortland lines the 333 is good and holds up. I like the Orvis Wonderlines too. Scientific Anglers and RIO make nice lines. The most expensive lines are the softer ones, and these will not hold up as long as the cheap, hard ones.

Pad we need to fish together more often! Get well damn it! Funny, I ended up giving away the Wonderline as I felt it had too much memory. I have a Rio WF but have only fished it perhaps a dozen times. So far so good but it's to early to tell.

Wulff Triangle taper. IMHO, casts well, floats well, lasts long, good for roll casts. I use it on all my trout rods.

I was going to recommend that line also, except that the poster said he likes DT lines. I agree that the line roll casts very well, probably better than a DT. However, some people really like the idea of reversing the line.

I'm with Padraic on this one...we discussed this a little while back and I think a lot of us said the Cortland 333 lines were better then a lot of the more expensive lines out there on the market. The 333 lines are what I have on all my fly rods now. I've tried the high end SA lines, Cortland 444 and 555 lines and I now have learned that the cheap 333 lines hold up and perform the best for how I like to fish.

I'll agree with the Cortland preference as well, but add that the yellow, 333HT are a little nice than the basic Green 333. I once had one last me almost ten years. It was double taper and I turned it around but 4 of those years were in Idaho and I was fishing over 200 days a year.

Be careful with the Orvis Wonder line. Its a funny product. Its either great or terrible out of the box. My new wonderline DT floating sunk like a rock the first time I used it.

If you would have or will contact Orvis about it, I believe they would immediately replace it for you. That is the one great thing about them is they go the full mile, at least, to leave you satisfied.

JackM your exactly right. I work for Orvis in Fort Myers part time and the return policy and customer service is great. If your buying line for a trip or need it immediately its not a gamble I would want to take. I still use Orvis line because I can send it back and put new stuff on it immediately however, I’ve began not to trust it as a product. By the time you realize that your floating line sinks it could cost a big part of the day. Love the rods and reels but the line can leave little to be desired.

That's what I thought about Orvis until a couple of weeks ago I tried to return a rain jacket I bought about 4 years ago. Guess what? I didn't have the original receipt and it cost over $100.

At Orvis's direction, I sent it back to them, asked them to repair the zipper or replace it with a similar jacket. I wasn't looking for an money.

What I got back was a gift card for $34.50(the cheapest cost they ever sold that jacket for) and not jacket. The letter said they "didn't want to leave me empty handed".

Now, not only didn't I have a receipt, but I didn't even have a jacket- they threw it out or lost it.

After about 5 or 6 calls, and many frustrating conversations, they are finally shipping a new one to me.

The moral is, 100% guarantees are not always what they seem.

Had a similar situation with an Orvis reel. It started grinding, so sent it back to get it fixed. They returned it and charged something like $10.00 (in addition to shipping and handling), and they didn't correct the problem with the reel.

For the converse, I too had a problem with areel. A battinkill multiplier. The arbor bushing was loose effectively eliminatiing the drag. It spun freely. They fixed mine, and replaced the housing, which used to grind.
