Described as a ‘game changer’ in reviews, ArcticSilver’s new MD (Micro-Diameter) fly lines have been designed by the Norwegian company’s team member and former world champion fly caster, Stener Skogmo.

They are said to feature an ‘extremely’ low diameter, giving them ‘unparalleled’ wind-cutting properties. They are ‘super-stable’ during flight to ensure they land straight, delivering longer casts and instant contact with the fly.

ArcticSilver says: “The high-density coating gives a fly line that maximizes energy from the rod so you can achieve longer casts with less power expended. They will work in any rod, but the combination of the Free-Flex concept and MD lines are a perfect match, the lines having been tuned with each rod in the ASI range.

The company adds that the stand-out features include:

  • Improved energy transfer;
  • High line speed;
  • Less spray on pick-ups;
  • Less water disturbance;
  • Straighter casts;
  • Low diameter helps cut through wind and allows more backing on the reel;
  • Strong braided core with tough bonding to the coating;
  • Strong welded micro-loops on both ends;
  • Taper allows for both spey and overhead casting.

The fly line is available in #5 to 8 in floating and Intermediate versions in packaging that doubles as a fly box.
