Ultra Compact are the shortest most compact shooting heads in the range produced by Scandinavian fly-fishing company Guideline.
These floating heads are made especially for fishing small rivers for sea trout and salmon with single-hand or Switch rods.
Explains Guideline: “The taper offers controlled and accurate turnover both with long leaders or with the biggest, bulkiest flies in your box. The taper construction distributes enough loading weight into the back of the line to make casting with limited backspace easier to perform.
“This gives a true advantage when fishing heavily overgrown rivers or lakes and coastal areas with obstacles behind you. Because of their short length, these lines have a very concentrated weight that loads the rod effectively. For maximum rod load, we recommend that you use a set up with, for example, the #6/7-16gr head on a 6-weight rod.
“If you prefer a slightly lighter feeling in your casting and fishing, you may choose to down-size by, for instance, using the 16gr #6/7 head on a 7-weight rod. Both options will work beautifully, but your demands and preferences will decide what is best for you.”
Ultra Compact heads come with tiny factory-made loops in both ends. Colour is light blue.
Guideline is based in Sweden, but also has offices in Norway. Though primarily a manufacturer, the company also distributes a selection of brands including Korkers boots and Einarsson reels.
