A new product for us, and one we are really proud of, our
Specialist Nymphing Fly Line
We decided to dip our toes into the world of specialist fly lines after trialling out a few nymph lines over the last Grayling season. We loved the way the lines fished:
- Very thin lines cut through the air easily and can be fished (without tangles) on even the most windy of days. We love the way they are much easier to manage than either mono or braid.
- Ultra-sensitive meaning you can feel the flies on the river-bed
However, the one thing we did not like, was the take detection. In most cases you have to feel the takes through your fingers, we wanted something which was much more visual. Enter our 'Euro Style' Specialist Nymph Line.
Our Specialist Nymph Fly Line has the following properties:
- Very Thin - 0.62mm level line
- It Floats - for when you need to change styles and nymph at longer ranges
- Micro welded loops on either end of the fly line
- Total Length - 28m (90ft)
- Low-Stretch braided core
- Olive Green with a built-in Orange indicator tip for easier take detection
These lines have been designed to be used specifically with Euro Nymphing rods (i.e. lightweight rods which are over 9ft in length), but we have found they work equally as well with shorter rods when nymphing on those really hard to get at areas! We believe that there are no other lines like these on the market (and definitely not at this price).
Please Note: These are level lines and do not have an AFTM weight rating, they do cast and load on a 1wt or 2wt rod (but they are not designed to be cast as you would a regular fly line), they are designed specifically for short-range nymphing.
Please Also Note: Our nymphing lines are FIPS compliant and valid for use in competitions.
Winter Grayling Fishing and Specialist Nymphing Fly Lines
When you're fishing for Grayling it’s usually in late Autumn or Winter and you’re lucky if you can feel your fingers at all, never mind a thin fly line. To that end we wanted to do something much more visual and after lots of reading (and testing) we have come up with a micro-thin diameter nymph line with a built-in indicator tip, this makes it super easy to detect takes by sight. Nine times out of ten when you're nymph fishing for Grayling, you’re either watching your line against the water (which is usually coloured) or against the far bank (which is either green or brown) - Having a built-in indicator means you can easily see the line, and detect even the slightest of takes. Having the line thin with a low stretch core, means you can also feel the flies on the river bed, the best of both worlds.
We currently have these lines in stock and ready to dispatch. Generally, if you order in the morning you will have your line the very next day (assuming you're in the UK of course). As usual, we ship all our orders free of charge to anywhere in the world.
