Fly Fishing Fly Line

Your fly line is just as important as your fly rod when it comes to casting your fly. A poor fly line on a really nice fly rod is like putting passenger car tires on a race car. If you economize on a fly rod, and there are some very nice economical rods on the market, try to buy the best fly line.

You need to know what line is best for what you hunt: bass, pike, musky, redfish, bonefish or trout.

Correctly mixing and matching line weight, head length and grain weight is crucial to perfectly animating flies as you intend. Whether you have a bamboo, fiberglass or graphite fly rod, we’ve got the fly line you’re looking for.

 

Tapers

With fly fishing, we are using a longer rod as a lever to move the line through the air while the relatively light fly goes for a ride, just the opposite of gear fishing. To make it easier and more efficient to cast, fly lines are designed with different tapers.

There are main types of tapers:

  • Weight Forward (WF) - these lines have the majority of weight towards the tip of the line.
  • Double Taper (DT) - double taper lines have the same taper on both ends and have a level section between the two tapered ends. These lines have the majority of the weight centered on the line.

Within the family of weight-forward lines, you will find quite a number of specialty lines allowing you to really dial in the best line for your intended use. Lines for casting bass bugs, musky flies, saltwater fly fishing and more. Please feel free to reach out to us for help in selecting the perfect line for you.

Line Weight

Picking the proper weight for your fly line is easy. All you have to do is match the weight of the line to the weight of the rod. A 5wt rod needs a 5wt line. There can be some variation in that but to keep things simple match the rod weight number to the line weight number.

There are three main types of fly lines:

  • Floating (F) - the entire fly line floats on the water.
  • Floating with Sinking Tip (F/S) - the front end of the line sinks with the remainder floating. The sinking tip sink rate will vary along with the actual length of the sinking section.
  • Full Sinking (S) - as the name implies, the whole fly line will sink. The sinking rate varies on these lines from intermediate sink rate, which sinks at about an inch and a half per second to lines that can sink very fast. Typically a line’s sink rate is listed in the model name. A Sink 3 sinks at 3 ips, Sink 6 at 6 ips, etc.
