Line suggestions for B&W 14'6 9/10wt walker

Anyone have a suggestion on a decent line for this rod? I'd like something in the 50-65' range. I have a lot of nextcast lines but kinda want to try something different. Seems all the cool kids like the galeforce lines. Maybe that's where I should be looking....

Nickels,

I will be testing several lines on that rod at the Sandy clave later this week. Get in touch with me next week and I might have some insights for you. Assuming you are looking for a floating line? Or something for tips?

Nickels,

Didn't get to try as many as I had hoped (the gaelforces were out with someone else) but the Beulah Aerohead 9/10 was MONEY. Gus (Evergreen 360) put on a great display with that combo. Loaded the rod just right and made needle shaped loops. Good stuff.

I see you're a shvingger too!

Hey thanks Tom. Sucks you didn't get to try more lines out. I have the Beulah aero head line for my 6wt Beulah platinum and it's a really awesome dry fly line. Just don't get caught in a breeze or its game over.

The Nextcast FF 70 9/10 is really nice on the 16'6" Walker. I would guess that the WA 55 in a 9/10 would like cast pretty nice on this rod, but I am only guessing. Spencesbridge will know best I think.

Not all who wander are lost.
