Brown fly line
I have an old shakespeare reel that has been in my basement for 8+ years. someone gave it to me. It has a brown(on the darker side of medium brown) fly line on it. I've never seen a fly line this color. I got it out and cleaned it up yesterday. It is a 90 ft double taper probably a 4 wt. This old line looks to be in great shape, no cracks or damage. I'm wondering who made it. The guy who gave it to me fished Alaska a lot. I've lost touch with him. Does anyone have any idea who made it? It seems to be a quality line. Maybe Canadian?
