I have an old Vector 8.5 foot, 5 weight fly rod, and I was looking for a new all around trout fly line, floating. Would you recommend a line that fits my rod best? Thank You, Ernie
Drew Miller: Hi Ernie, I’ve owned several Vector fly rods and still fish a couple to this day. It was a well designed rod with a fast action and smooth casting. The line I typically match to this rod is the Rio Gold in either the original texture or the new In Touch. Both of these lines will perform exceptionally well casting small to large dry flies and indicator nymphing. I will even use a sinking poly leader to fish small or medium sized streamers.
