    Default Suggested line for switch rod nymphing?

    Hello Everyone,

    I recently started building my own switch rod its 11'9" wt8 I am looking into what line I should spool up for the rod and there's plenty of reviews on types of lines and as reviews go some bad some good. So I figure coming here to see what you guys to help me decide, before I empty the wallet on new line. For the switch rod its primarily going to be used for bows and browns, I prefer to run a nymph rig with a bead dropper. So basically I just want a good line that I can still nymph with success but also be able to switch onto my heavy streamers and throw them with ease.

    Right now I have looked at:
    Rio switch chucker
    Royal Wulff ambush

    Yeah I am very excited to get to use the rod, I have been wanting one for quite sometime. I saved a lot of money on the rod by choosing to build it on my own. Attached are a couple pictures of the progress.
