    Whats your preferred line for a 5wt? Will be used primarily for bass and cold water trout.

    You going to be throwing a lot of streamers?

    I've been using the Cortland Big Fly 5wt and love it. It pushes big poppers through the wind with ease, also heavy streamers.

    SA MPX is my go-to. Have not tried their new Amplitude line (will be putting some on a new 5wt reel later this month), but the Mastery has been great.
