  • Rio Creek WF1F Review by Mark

    Firstly? This isn’t the must have line for the Sage Dart IMHO
    Sure its a very useful line and thats why I bought one!
    I do a lot of ultra light fishing so feel I’m in a good position to review this line.
    A normal line in this case a WF1? The grain weight is distributed over the 1st 30 feet excluding the level tip. Average for a 1wt is around 60 grains of weight,so 60 grains over 30 feet.
    The Creek line is designed for more close in work where you wont be aerialising 30 feet and then shooting. So the 60-65 grain 1wt mass has been built into the 1st 18 feet,rather than the normal 30.
    This loads the rod in close very well and it does!
    With the short front taper helping as well.
    It also helps with wind and weighted flies,well? As much as you can with a 1wt.
    This line is nice and supple as well, ideal for river fishing.
    Those are the pros
    The cons? For summer dryfly on my shrunken local streams? My 1wt silk line is much nicer! More delicate and you get a feel from the Dart that you don’t get using the Creek.
    If you condense 60 grains over 18 feet rather than 30 feet? You get a thicker line.Hence not so delicate. Might just be me being picky? The 1wt Creek is still a very light line.
    The other con is price! But the high end lines cost money,world we live in.
    To sum up? I like this line,its versatile (even acts as a mini shooting head) a great addition to my arsenal.
