Default Looking for a new fly line

I was just wondering what fly lines everyone else has been fishing. I am looking to fill a new spool for a 7'9" 3wt. Diamondback Classic rod with a medium action. In the past I've used SA lines, but have become partial to Rio Lines . I've used multiple Rio Lines from the Classic to Nymph to Windcutter. Does anyone out there fish with Royal Wulff Triangle Taper, or Airflo? What are you all fishing with? Any thoughts on the subject are appreciated.

Thanks All!

You will enjoy the Wulff on that rod, especially if you're roll casting a lot. The Cortland Sylk seems to work pretty well on them as well, & i'm partial to a DT Peach on my 3 weights.

I use SA Mastery Series on both of my trout rods. They work well. This year I gonna replace the 4wt line. I was thinkin about a Rio, the shop says that they out-do SA. Stick with what you like, that always works for me

I like Airflo's slickness. They are very easy to shoot. Floats hig too. They are not easy to get hold of around here unless you do online or mailorder from the big outlets. Rajeff sports distribute them, should pop up on a google search. They make a real nice line specially tapered for river fishing.

I like reddinton or Sage Performance Taper fopr Medium rods. Although if it hasa fast tip Sage Quiet Taper is excellent.

The last time I stopped by LRO, Chris hooked he up with one of the new Cortland lines in an olive color. The line casts very well and virtually disappears in the water, which seemingly led to more strikes. I had never used Cortland before but this particular line has made a believer out of me.
