Looking to match up a spey line to a Sage 9140 "brownie". I know these rods have been around for a long time, so I am hoping for some advice on what a good line would be to match this rod. I am currently fishing with a Sage 8126 "greenie" with a mid-spey line 9/10 that came with the combo I had purchsed used loaded on a Ross CLA 6, it seems to match up nicely with the rod. This spring when I purchased the "brownie", tried the line that I have, it was a completely different entity and didn't feel right on the 9140. I will be loading the line on a Redington Titanium CDL 11/12.

Any help is appreciated,

Bill

I have a 9140 VPS, and I know what I would NOT recommend, is the Midspey 8/9 that I currently have on it. After trying other lines, I don't like the Midspey as much as some of the others. Mind you, I am a total novice when it comes to two hand rods...so take my opinion as such. For a total hack like myself, the Skagit lines with the GL Shooter floating running line is easy to cast, and works well for swinging flies for small to medium sized rivers like the Vedder/Chilliwack and the Squamish. :2cents:

i agree with you Stone i didnt like the first spey line i had and pretty sure it was a mid belly line. the Airflo im tossing now isnt as short as the Skagit but even for a newbie like myself i can toss it very easily :thumbup: I love it and it matches my 9140 nicely and my line is a 10/11 weight so it loads deep for a bit easier casting :thumbup:

I will probably be using tips most of the time. I am still very green with the two handers, but learning every outing. Looking forward to putting them to work in a couple of weeks. :thumbup:
