Choosing the right line for your single handed fly rod can be a very simple task, but it can be made a bit more complicated. The easy way is to first choose what density you want on your fly line, should it be floating, sinking, intermediate or maybe your line should have several densities. Once you have answered this question, you can move on to deciding which taper you want on the rope, the most common is WF (weight forward, a taper where much of the weight is distributed at the front) but also DT (double tapered, the line looks the same at both the front and back edge of the head , the weight is thus evenly distributed over the entire head ) . Then you have to choose the class on the line, here it is usually enough to choose the same class as on your rod. This was the easy way.
If you want to make it more complicated and find the perfect line for your rod and for your purpose, then a little more research is required. Start by following the three steps from the "easy way" but then think about what you are going to use the line for, do you want to cast long, with precision, under-glove cast in tight spaces or maybe a line adapted for salt water, there is basically a line for everything in today's market. The most common way to adapt fly lines with different characteristics is to change its taper, where a line for underglove casting should preferably have a short and front-heavy head that loads your rod easily, a line for fine presentations has a soft front taper that allows your line to land softly on the surface of the water and the list goes on. But of course there is an easy way here too, contact us and we will help you, we have generations of experience to share.
