Vintage Fishing Line

Here are a few shots of the old fishing line I got with the vintage fly fishing reels. The monofilament line is pretty weak compared to the braided line I’m used to, but I’m looking forward to using it again. This type of line doesn’t age well, despite looking strong its breaks very easily. My favorite spool is the old wooden spool on the far right, its gotta be pretty old!. Now all I need to do is organize and photograph all the old flies and then I will take a trip to Fishing Fever for some new line, which is conveniently dangerously close (a 5 minute walk away!).
