Sorry, I'm not familiar with Tiemco fly lines in the past. Right now they do not list any fly lines on their website. The packaging could be Scientific Anglers. It could be Cortland.

I think of Tiemco as a Japanese Domestic Market company first and a US distributor second. I like the color, which reminds me of the Cortland Peach color. I expect the phrase 'Sakura Pink' means more to a Japanese buyer than in the US buyer.

Have you fished with it yet?

I haven't had a chance to line them up yet. The packaging and xps on the packaging made me think maybe SA but I could not find any info on tiemco fly lines. The "sakura Pink" seems to be used on a few different Japanese fishing products. It is a different color than the cortland peach but pretty similar.

sakura apparently translates as "cherry blossom" so "cherry blossom pink"

The packaging is definitely SA. Cortland has round containers and also looks different (clear plastic).

Tiemco being the Japanese importer of SA for Japan often sells special lines for Japanese fishery. Also often discontinued lines are available longer in Japan, like the SA Heritage available both in WF (USA) and DT.

Next I'd like to know more about the Fenwick in the background--a new thread if you have much to tell about it.

There are actually two fenwick multipiece blanks in that picture. Was lucky enough to grab a few on ebay a while back. Built one like the 5pc in the background as a spinning rod with recoil guides for a pack trip in alaska. Great trout and greyling rod. Gave it away to a guy that took us out in his boat fishing and let us stay at his log cabin on the lake. Need to finish the other ones.
