I like either Rio gold, or Rio grande, they have both worked well for me. Another line that I have had good luck with is Barrio GT 90 line. Although Barrio has switched makers, and now call it GT 90 II which I have not tried yet.

I’ll take a look at the line profiles and also try to find info on the barrio lines. Thanks

Rio elite gold wf5 headlength is 47ft so it allows for a supple presentation but also quick rod loading. 60-65ft cast with 18-22 dries with at max 2 false cast. I've also used orvis pro textured and SA MPX. Their presentation abilities are good but not as good.

Title says it all. Looking for a dry fly line for an orvis Helios 3F 5wt for bigger river fishing. Tossing stoneflies to tricos. Majority 14-20. Thanks.
Wulff Triangle Taper is hands down the best dry fly line.
