RE:6 Wt. Line

Terry -

Luis' recommendation will give you exceptional roll casting and distance with lots of aerialized line for stillwater which is a plus around the northeast. Long belly lines will also improve that as well while requiring a little less line in the air. Short compact heads give you more bite into wind and popper punching power. The standard FWF is an all-around design.

I would imagine that for bass fishing you might consider a bug taper, and for trout something with a more gradual taper?
