I know and understand the expression to walk a fine line. Ex: "He was walking a fine line between being funny and being rude."But can I ever say "a fine line to walk"? Is the following sentence correct?
"There is a fine line to walk between being funny and being rude"

Thanks to you all.

Eddie.

    You would more normally say simply "There's a fine line between between being funny and being rude."

    No need to talk of "walking" that line other than when someone is attempting to do so.
