Best Fly Line -
By: from Chattanooga, TN
The Wonderline family of fly lines has been consistently superior. Super slick and easy to handle.
too much memory -
By: kokee from HI
Too much memory, tangles easy, feel like seconds(blemish).
just what I was looking for -
By: Bick from Fl.
great line for Florida's hot weather for either salt or fresh water
clear intermediate fly line -
I bought this on sale so it was a good value. The 10 weight line is not clear. It took a bit for it to relax but once it did, it worked well. It's a bit stiffer than other lines I've used.
Good Intermediate Line for Saltwater Use -
Orvis' Wonderlines are quickly becoming my favorite fly lines to use and the Intermediate Tropical is no exception. This line shoots through the guides smoothly and loads quickly, making me a better caster. I can continuously blast 50 feet of line without much effort, and since I use the line for Mahis and Blackfins close to the boat, I have no real need to make superhuman casts of over 70 feet. This line is not a naturally clear color, but once you start casting and get the line down in the water it becomes a lot harder to see, and if I cannot see the line neither can the fish. The line also does not drop like a rock; it sinks very slowly so the presentation gets a natural fall in the strike range of the big bull dorados and tuna. I cannot recommend this line enough!
Pictured and described incorrectly -
By: ClayBreaker from TN
This line is a transluceny light to medimum green color. The web picture and the discription state it is clear. The Orvis sinking tip salterwater line has a totally clear (stealthy) sinking tip section as stated on the Orvis web site. If you are looking for a line that is completely clear like the tip section of the Orvis saltwater sinking tip line there are other lines available. This line is not clear. I returned the line, however, it would be helpful if Orvis would accurately describe and picture their products to avoid customer expense and time in returning something when it is not correctly posted on the web site.

This line is perfect for snook fishing on the beach. It keeps the fly low but not on the bottom
Great Purchase -
I totally recommend the Wonderline, Clear Intermediate Tropical, Generation 3 to any fly fishing angler. I have been using this line for several years in South America on peacock bass and find it to be a great purchase. The lines I recently used do have one draw back that is of some concern. Both fly lines have revealed cracks and breaks in the outer coating that protects the core. Both lines have been used extensively for two months out of a year and both lines revealed cracks and cuts as if the line itself had been cut to the core. There were no other abrasions present that I could distinguish otherwise this fly line is truly great.
Great for Peacocks -

Switched to clear intermediate fly line after the first day and doubled the number of strikes fishing for Peacock Bass in Brazil. Easy to cast and shoot and strong enough to pull mean fish out of the sticks.
