The rod and reel are only half of the story when optimizing gear. The correct fly line is a must for maximizing the performance of a rod and should be matched to the type of rod being used as well as the type of fishing being done.

 

 

Here are a few guidelines to help you choose the right fly line. First, we will cover the dynamics of a fly line. The change in the diameter of the fly line is called the taper. The taper determines how the energy of your cast is transmitted from the rod to the fly. The longer and thinner the front taper, belly, and rear taper, the slower the line will dissipate the energy of the cast, which allows for greater accuracy and control. The shorter and thicker the front taper of the fly line is, the more energy is transmitted directly to the fly, which will increase distance and turn the fly over quicker. There are several different types of tapers to consider: weight-forward, double taper and specialty (sinking lines).

About fly line construction. It starts with a core material followed by an outer coating. The stiffness of the core material is important to consider in regards to the type of climate being fished. The more supple materials (Dacron) are better for cool weather/cool water environments. When heading to the tropics, a stiffer core is best and will not wilt with the heat, break down in a saltwater environment and will shoot well resulting in longer casts.

WEIGHT FORWARD LINES
Weight forward lines are constructed with the greatest mass of fly line located in the first 30’. This helps to propel the cast outward and will load the rod quickly. These are versatile lines that delicately present to trout or that nasty Barracuda in the tropics. Depending on the application of the line, the length of the head on weight forward lines will vary as well as change the casting characteristics.

Description

Our lines are 85' in total length and coated with a UV resistant PVC to prevent corrosion. This allows for an excellent formation of the taper and gives the line a low coefficient of friction to improve casting ranges and conditions. The core of our lines are manufactured with a braided nylon for strength. This is also to the advantage for a low line memory.


Weight Forward - The casting weight is gathered in the front end of the line. This taper is an excellent choice for windy conditions or long distance casting.
