    I am looking to get a new fly line for my 6wt 9 foot riverworks rod. I fish the rakaia and lakes mainly and have a good 8 foot 5wt i use for the smaller stuff.

    Living in canterbury one that handles wind and a good distance would be a plus keen to hear experience/advice.

    I am not the best casters, but I do like my Rio lines. Either the Rio Gold which has a slighter shorter head or the Rio Grand. I believe both are .5wt heavier then marked so good for pushing into the wind.

    Cool have you tried any others? How did they compare?

    Sharkskin line was very noisy, and certainly not worth the asking price.
