    Default Best line for yellows?

    Just a little advice please.
    I have a TFO BVK 9ft 5wt, and was wondering what the best line to use for Sterkfontein yellows wold be.
    I have been using a Rio Gold WF5f.
    Is this line any good, or is there one that offers a better presentation?

    Try aiming your cast a metre ABOVE the water and your presentation will miraculously improve. Unless the line is not loading the rod properly it should be fine.

    The rio is a nice line and is half a weight heavier than the rating.I use rio and have no issues with it.I do however prefer the Scientific anglers gpx line.Its slightly a thinner line and feels much lighter on the rod yet still offers great casting.
    Anyone of these two however are great lines

    I like the airflo sixth sense floating lines for sterkies . The gold is also a great line though

    Used the Rio Gold at Sterkies just last weekend. It was a brand new line and I was very happy with it. Casts well, lovely soft presentation, almost no memory and floats high. Very pleased with the purchase.

    I also have the Sci Anglers GPX on my 7wt and that too is a fabulous line. Would probably agree with John that it is marginally better but I would be more than happy fishing either at Sterkies with confidence.
