It would probably be a DB. The corresponding number would refer to the length of the rod.

I have caught bass and yellows on Vivif and Hoochy Toads. The vivif tended to have a stiff tail - so to give them better action, the tails were shaved - looks like your grandfather used them and thought the same thing. Talk to Matt Salas about the O.Pop jigs.

"The world of Truline is a mystery and a trap" is the best way I've ever heard it put.
Heads-up: Fred Hall has the potential to be a Truline armegedon this year.
I'm getting there early to get a good seat for the shit show.
Provided it occurs.

How do you make a small fortune buying/selling Tru Lines? Start with a large one!

I'll bet Eric would love to have that vacuum sealed Cortland fishing line for his collection, that's a pretty rare find!
