Has anyone used this line?

I'm thinking about getting a new line for my 6wt.

to be sure i'm a beginner and a bit wobbly getting 50' of line out in a handsome fashion.

none the less i've been slaying the crappie, bluegill, yellow perch and bass in my local reservoir.

the water is very clear this time of year.

also i intend to use this line in very clear swift water.

hope its good for nymphing etc.

The 555 is not good in cool weather as it has a lot of memory and retains a coiling shape from the reel. There is another thread on this line somewhere. (Gear forum, I think). The 444 WF is a classic, though.

i've got the ghost tip line and it's not even that great in warm weather. I expected it to be more... ghostly ?
