Best New Fly Line
UK company Snowbee is making a habit of developing outstanding new fly lines. It has followed up victory in last year’s EFTTEX Best New Fly Line Award by introducing the Snowbee XS ‘Switch’ Floating Fly Line. Snowbee says that it was originally conceived to be the perfect match for its Snowbee Prestige Switch rod series. But in tests it proved far more versatile, enhancing the performance of a wide range of Switch-style rods and working perfectly as an integral shooting head on many reservoir rods too.
Not to be outdone, Climax has introduced its range of Climax SuperFineTip lines designed for efficient nymph fishing. Says Climax: “Our fly fishing specialists refused to accept that all you can do to improve tackle for nymph fishing is to tie an extra-long and fine leader and use a long, lightweight rod. So we put our heads together and thought about any little detail that could be improved on a nymph fly line. The result is Climax SFT SuperFineTips.”
