A new product for us, and one we are really proud of, our
Specialist Nymph Fly Line
We decided to dip our toes into the world of specialist fly lines after trialling out a few nymph lines over the past 8 months. 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 they 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 the Brilliant White Specialist Nymph Line.
Our Specialist Nymph Fly Line has the following properties:
- Very Thin - 0.55mm 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 - 30m (100ft)
- Low-Stretch braided core
- Brilliant White 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).
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 which is brilliant white in colour, 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 white fly line 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.
The following short video shows you some short-line nymphing using the line against both a coloured river and high banks. You can easily see the line and detect takes.
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.
