Product Information

3 Lines Designed By Tasmanian Fly Fishing Guide Mike Tenner, These Lines Will Enhance The Performance Of The Fly Angler,This Fly Line With Its And Balanced Loading System Will Allow You To Cast Further And More Accurately In this listing you get one of each of the following

  • Floating fly line is designed to float on the surface of the water along its entire length. Floating fly line is essential for presentation of artificial flies that must remain on the surface such as dry flies, poppers, bugs, etc. Floating fly line is also necessary to fish nymphs effectively with strike indicators.
  • Intermediate line is a more of a general sinking line. Sink rate is 1.5" per second, and they are used when fishing lakes and rivers to medium depths. Useful when fishing over weed beds so as to keep flies just above them. 
  • Sinking fly line is designed to sink along the entire length of fly line and is typically used in fly fishing deep waters or where the artificial fly must reach the bottom of the water column rapidly.

 

 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.

For slow to medium action rods, use a line with a delicate front taper  These lines will not overload the rod because they are an exact line weight. This will help with delicate presentations and allow the fly to turnover without crashing down on the surface of the water.

Medium to fast action fly rods will work best with a weight forward line that has a little more belly (first 30’) in the line to properly load the rod at short to medium distances.  The longer compound taper on the front of the line allows for delicate turnover at any distance and the relaxed rear taper allows for better roll casting and mending.

Fast to Ultra fast action rods require a line that will load the rod quickly with minimal false casting. This type of line has most of the mass of the fly line towards the head and usually a half of a line weight heavier than the manufacturing standard.  for maximum distance, casting big flies into the wind or two fly rigs with lots of weight and big indicators.

  • Intermediate line is a more of a general sinking line. Sink rate is 1.5" per second, and they are used when fishing lakes and rivers to medium deeps. Useful when fishing over weed beds to keep flies just above them. For faster and deeper water look at the fastsinking lines
  • Sinking fly line is designed to sink along the entire length of fly line and is typically used in fly fishing deep waters or where the artificial fly must reach the bottom of the water column rapidly.
  • Colour may change depending on stock level

Rod & Fly Trout Patterns I’ve tried have proved durable example Tungsten bead MK11 Woolly Bugger have now encountered several good fish and are still going strong...Philip Weigall

 

The build and quality of these rods really is of high standerd by comparison with rods of any price. Overall this is a very crisp 5 weight suitable for smaller streams to medium lake work...Trevor Hawkins

 

Your little 6'6" 3wt accounted for 10 fish in a morning. The 2- and 3-pounders certainly put a bend it! Nice rod though– well done for the price.Our reviewer liked your 6wt too. Very impressed, even after putting down his Sage XP ( perhaps the best rod ever made) to use it!... FlyLife Magazine
Your flies and service are first class. Especially the emerger patterns.........Rex Hunt

           Discovery Romeo........  Damn good reels for the price ...... Steve Starling
