I am looking to replace the fly line and backing on my reel. Everything I own regarding my rod/reel and line is the original Cabela’s Prestige One combo set-up. Knowing that I’m going to purchase and build a Sage TXL 7’10” 3wt. and the reel I’ve chosen is an Orvis CFO, I am curious to pose the question:
What is your recommendation for an all around great Line for the Orvis CFO reel (maybe that doesn’t matter that much, I don’t know). I want a Floating Line that is going to last and is versatile, I want one set-up right know and don’t know about changing lines for nymphing. What about backing? Not as important due to the fact that on my water’s I’ll seldom get to the backing? Or should that still matter. I know these are not easy questions but I would really appreciate some advice, I’d like to purchase something shortly after Jan. 1st.
Has anyone used these leaders by Feather-Craft? I’m thinking about trying a few out.
I am going to continue using the rod/reel combo I have knowing that I still have to practice casting and would rather beat this rod up than the nice one I’m going to get. Thanks.
