Hook & Hackle Fly Lines Arrive

Over the past few weeks I've been working on the Cabela's C.G.R. fiberglass fly rod review in the yard and on the water.  There are five fly rods in this series from three weight to eight weight.

After a bit of consideration it only seemed like the only correct way to evaluate and review these fly rods was to use the exact same fly line series from fly rod to fly rod.

I chose the Hook & Hackle fly lines to use for this review since for the money they can't be beat.  It only makes sense that if you're purchasing a $100 fly rod that you'll want to match it with a economy but high performance fly line as well. 

I have long been a fan of the Hook & Hackle Hi-Floater fly lines and contacted them about getting a few fly lines to fill in the gaps of what I didn't already have loaded up on a fly reels.

I typically use double taper fly lines but realize that the larger audience of those that read the review of the Cabela's C.G.R. fly rods more than likely use weight forward fly lines instead.

Hook & Hackle was gracious to provide four weight forward fly lines to use for this review and it will be neat to see how they perform across the C.G.R. fiberglass series of fly rods. 

Look for the full review in a week or two.  I'm trying to get it complete but work and home life keep getting in the way.
