As it gets closer to spring time (at least on the calendar), I want to get ready for my first fly fishing adventure.
Several years ago I bought a LL Bean Quest 8'6" 5 Wt 2piece rod that came with a Quest I reel with line.
The "issue" is I never used this set up and I was wondering if I should replace the line.
Does fly fishing line have "memory" like other lines? If it does, then can this new line
have the "memory" removed?
Any suggestions on what type of line to use with this type of rod & reel coupled with zero experience?
Also, I want to purchase my first vest. There are several to choose from and I would like some input on what one is the most practical for a novice who doesn't have tons of flies and other accouterments.
