The early days of fly fishing were all about trout and salmon. All we had for choice in lines was double taper, weight forward or level. For this reason, the line rating system was built around trout fishing and it worked.
Today we fly fish for practically any predatory fish that swims using a huge variety of fly lines with the result that the fishing industry has long outgrown the old rating system. While all that choice is great and we wouldn’t have it any other way, when we set out to buy a fly line for our fishing, we can end up confused and frustrated with a considerable chance of buying the wrong line.
Peter’s presentation is about understanding how we have moved beyond the traditional line rating system to offer a very broad range of fly lines that can handle a huge range of conditions and species.
With this understanding, we’re far more likely to purchase the right fly line for our fishing and in the process, fish more effectively with greater enjoyment!
