I'm heading to Aruba in another week and setting up my bonefish fly tackle. I'll be fishing a 6/7wt Sage, custom built rod.

My question is; I have an Airflo cold water clear line in 8 weight I use for stripers, is the cold water line going to be to soft in the tropical water? I also have another 8 wt floating trout line I'm taking as a back up. It's yellow in color, which I'm thinking may spoke the fish.

The 8 wt works the rod a bit, but I'm thinking it will be good for the windy conditions on the island.

Thanks for your help.

I can only recommend that you get a warm water fly line that is the right weight for the rod.
Cold water and trout lines get very soft like over cooked spaghetti and will tangle, probably when you are casting to the biggest bonefish you have ever seen.:frown:
