for bass/bluegill? Cabela prestige plus or cortland 333 - looking for an inexpensive line for warm water. will use it about 6 -8 times/yr.

I think either would be fine. I bought Cabelas Prestige WW line for approx $40 for my 6wt and like it. I do think it turns over heavier streamers and the like better than a standard WF 6wt line. I currently don't have a 5wt in my lineup and I fished MB's and Drakes on Penns with the 6wt last year and it did fine with those too.

I use the Cabela prestige plus on my brook trout rig. It works.

Dear Kbobb,

If you want to go real cheap buy one from these folks. Tom Gamber from the board turned me on to them a couple of years ago.

I have 4 or 5 lines from them and they work just fine. For $ 45.00 you can get 4 lines including shipping if you want to pick up a couple of spares in other line weights.

I like the Cabela's Prestige line for trout, although I haven't fished my 5Wt WF line extensively for bass or bluegill. If you're wanting something from a smaller, more local company, check out Hook and Hackle ( I've bought a 5 wt DT line for my backup 5wt reel and have like the line so far. They come in "earthy" colors and have the option of WF or DT.

I got the cabelas Li e for my nephew. I might as well be a sink tip. I've been very unhappy with their products over the last couple of years. Cortland line has durability issues but they will stand behind their product.

The Streamlight line is the Scientific Anglers Headstart relabeled for sale by Bean. Retails for $19.99 and sometimes it's on sale for $9.99. Can't beat that price and it is a good choice for warmwater.
Too bad it's only available in WF_F.
