: 5 weight line

As you may have seen from the rod rack section, I have recently built a 5 weight rod. Mainly it will be used for wet flies and poppers trying to fool crappies. Up in Minnesota the slabs are pressed against the shallows to where sight fishing works well, but in some of the main shallow crappie coves it is nearly impossible to get the boat within 50 feet of them. I need a good line for distance and being delicate. As many of you know I am a bargain type flyfisherman. Lets say the max price is $40, are there any tremendous steals out there for the money?
