Yeah, the smallest is a WF4F line in the First Cast. I would like to see someone market a short UL line that fits on the UL reels available, BPS UL and others...

No kidding. I guess this the price we pay for not being into mainstream "heavy tackle" :-) I really don't *need* that many lines, but I love to experiment so it's fun to have at least a couple WF and a DT lines from different manufacturers in each line weight.

Hey Jerry,
That's half the fun isn't it. If you find a cheaper option and it works -Woohoo!If it doesn't, well at least we learned something.

Exactly! If we can't be out fishing then at least we can be out in the yard trying different lines :-)

I will be snow casting this winter to stay sharp, and Lord knows how I will mark my targets...maybe our kiddie pool?

I need to start watching eBay a little more closely.

I love the way this new 1 wt casts with the Wonderline WF, but I can help but wonder how it would be with a Sage 1 wt, or a DT, but I sure don't want to pay full retail to find out :-)

You can grab DT1 and DT2 lines on eBay for less than half what they are on the sticker...

I feel bad for you. Still, there has to be someplace you can fish during the winter huh? C'mon down--it's not that far ;-)

In Austin I knew a little spot where a storm drain dumped into a main river. Even when it was freezing outside and the river was too cold to fish, the water from the storm drain stayed fairly warm and there were almost always a few active fish right where it entered the river. It wasn't much but it was something :-)

Yeah, I can catch some trout here...but they are not my first choice. I caught a bass in sub 50 degree water Tuesday.
