    Default Does anyone buy up flylines when you see em cheap.

    I stalk eBay often and look for new lines like Rio grands,gold,SA gpx's and trout lines.I guess they will hold up being stored in cool dry places.I have a SA trout in willow that I just picked up new for 32.00 shipped.

    I will buy up my preferred brand if on sale and store them in the gun safe. For me that is Shark Skin or SA gpx but also a lot of different weights and sink rate sinking lines from Orvis.

    Yes. For example, Sierra Trading Post had Airflow Ridge Supple Tactical floating lines for about $22.00, so I bought 4 of them. Similarly, an online shop had SA Mastery Series GPX DT lines (I do prefer DT lines) for about $42.00, so again, I bought 4 of them. I just can't see paying $80 for a fly line. The markup on them must be phenomenal, as I doubt it costs more than $10 to manufacture a fly line.

    i guess i'm one of the few who don't. it has been my experience that at least once a year, last years models lines can be found on the cheap. i frequent the clearance special pages at mrfc.com, especially at the end and beginning of the year. really great deals on there most of the time. if all else fails, there are always the classified forums here and numerous other sites. seems like if a absolutely need a line, i can always find one somewhere.

    Does anyone have an informed opinion of the actual costs of manufacturing a fly line??? Seems to me that it can't be more than $10. Am I wrong??
