WNY Fly Fishing - Product Review - Scientific Anglers Amplitude Fly Line WF5F

 I have had the pleasure to test this line out and can tell you it Rocks the House!!!!! it casts very well and is smooth going through the guides, it will throw big streamers and then whisper the dries gently down. I put it on my Sage 10' rod, it loads the rod with little effort and is a point and shoot line, and by that I mean you look load and fire the line right to the spot without any effort.

WNY Fly Fishing Stream Report 1/5/2019

The fishing has been very good from the reports I have been getting lately from everyone, lots of people and warm temps have the streams getting pounded. If you get away from people and move very carefully along the water and you can pick up fish, low clear water is a perfect time to use trout beads in more subtle colors.
