    Thank you, Alphahawk. = one of these days, I would like to fish with you, one day. I certainly do not like braid. I am going to make up my mind before long. Give me your recommendation, please. I am 72 and have fair sight. I keep 3 rigs ready, if I break off, I just pick up another, It is almost impossible to retie a knot in the boat, for me.
    Regards- Scott

    I would get either the Troutist Area in 3# test or the Varivas Super Trout Advance Sight Edition in 3# test. You will not go wrong with either. I hear you about tying the knots. I had to go to hi-vis lines as there is no way I can see the clear lines. As for fishing I need to get back to Pickwick in the spring. I used to live close....like real close. I lived in Middleton, TN. Then I moved 90 miles from Pickwick....now I live 146 miles from there. One day trips at age 68 are no fun anymore. But....I do want to hit it a few more times if I can.

    Regards

    It will be nice to get feedback on the Troutist Area. I have the Troutist Wild 3 lb and will report on that.

    Hope to give some feedback within a week or so. Just ordered the line and while it will be here in a few days I will have to wait for the weather to get right. The white bass surely are below Nickajack right now so when I get the first decent weather day will test it out. The white bass will be a good test for it.

    The white bass run has dropped off at my favorite lake. Was catching 40/50 a morning, I was using 4# Kast King Copolymer line. A very good cheap line. They were running from 1 to 2.5#, a real fight. Most were released. Fun, Fun.
