I need to replace some size 7 lines for the single handed rod, the question is colour yellow, orange, white, green, ivory is the colour just a visual thing for the anglers benifit or does it make a difference.
Will be used on river and loch, day and night.
Thanks.
John.

Sorry guys completely missed the thread colour of lines

Assuming they see them from below then the lines will appear as a black silhouette in day light & at night it shouldn't make any difference to the fish as they will detect the splash as the line lands rather than its' colour; so buy the one you find easiest to see in both day time & at night as this will make things a little easier.

Regards, Tyke.

No longer manufactured, but if you can get your hands on a Sshoot Slickstream fly line, its a cracker for sea trout river fishing.

The old chesnut coloured Neutral Density cant remember who manufactures, I think scientific anglers and the Cortland blue Intermediate are what I would always use and nothing else unless I wanted to fish really deep and then the wetcel 2 would come out.

I found the wf 8 Intermediate by cortland are fantastically good line, especially for also fishing lochs from the bank for salmon too - It's what I always fished with at Amhuinsuidhe and brought me success every time.

Thanks for the input guys, i started useing a Rio midge tip four years ago on South Uist but last year i just was'nt seeing it in certain light conditions, might go for a hi viz or an eye test might be a better option.
Thanks again
John

I luckily got hold of this line.couple of cracks at front end now + using #8 rods & line is #7 so its put away til I find a nice #6 or #7 rod.Very nice line to use as are a plethora of others at the moment.Sewincaster,4cast,40+ to name a few.
