    Looking to purchase some decent flyline for my reel, Ive not used it in years any suggestions on brand and stuff these days? Doesnt have to be the best just a decent line . Also decent leader line as well. I will be using it in rivers mostly .. Thanks for the replies.

    Hard to beat the old standby Cortland 777 line and for leaders a small spool of 4 lb test mono works. Guys seem to want to get fancy when the old stuff still works well.

    I too would suggest Cortland .... their 333 series in trout-yellow / floating is pretty much a general purpose fly line. I looked at some not too long ago .... seemed like around $30.

    Scientific Angler - Air Cell is what I'm running now ... and I have no real complaint. But with any ... a little dressing every so often will extend the life drastically. Which there's a boo-koo of fly lines out there at any price your willing to pay. However for around here .... creeks , ponds or lakes ... the cheaper stuff does fine. Might upgrade to a higher end or specialty line if I were to get serious to go out west or Alaska but that would be an exception.

    I too agree on using 3-4# mono as tippet or leader on most occasion if your fishing for gills or bass.... cheaper route. But for trout I use Cabelas prestige tippet. Bought an assortment few years ago 2x, 3x, 4x & 5x along with leaders.... no complaints there either.

    I like Scientific Anglers Mastery Series or Wulff Triangle Taper if you're fishing cold water rivers for trout with small flies, nymphs, etc.

    For economy, I usually buy a double taper floating line. If you wear one end out, you can reverse it on the spool. Cortland and Scientific Angler are the usual brands I buy.
