    I've not been dissappointed with the SA Mastery Bass Bug line.

    Rio makes a bass line; however, I've not used it and can't comment.

    BP AKA Bass-Master,
    Good to see you here. I've used the SA line bass lines and they work great. Another thing you can do in a pinch is to use old floating lines. Don't do this to your new line as you'll want to use it for trout also.
    I took a fairly worn out SA GPX 7 wt floater and cut 2.5 feet off the front taper. That gives it a front taper of 5' and a 28' belly, very similar to the SA bass line. The back taper is slightly shorter then the bass line. I fish it on a fast action 6 wt and it casts popper well.
    Good luck,
    Brian

    Watch for deals on any of these.
    Bass line
    Pike line
    Saltwater line
    Distance line
    Rio's Outbound line
    All of these lines have short front tapers with more of the mass concentrated further forward than would be on a normal WF line. They are all designed to throw bulky flies.
