Cold water floating fly line

What's your go-to floating line for cold water? I'm still using a Rio Bonefish Quickshooter, but I think water temps will soon be too cold for it.

Anything that is not tropical in nature for sure . Orvis , courtland and Rio make cold water floaters and intermediates.

As recommended by some good fly fisherman I use Rio Outbound Short. It works for me but doesn't get the long cast like my Air Flo Cold Salt Water Intermediate.

I agree - good line but poor distance. And very heavy.

Floating line

I don't use the floating line a lot, but i have been using a 9wt Orvis Hydros All Rounder that has worked well. I am not a fan of textured lines (no real reason). I have casted this line on a few different rods and i have no complaints.
