Scientific Anglers Sharkskin Magnum Taper fly lines. By Ray Schmidt
Magnum Taper. The name says a lot, maybe all that can be said.
I received my sample lines in today?s mail and I couldn?t wait to try them out. Just think, a Magnum fly line!
I strung up my trusted 6wt rod and headed to our pond. The wind is blowing like hell today and it?s cold! I tied on a big hunk of yarn for the test and stripped off a bunch of line. This one felt and sounded the same in the guides as the Sharkskin Trout and Saltwater tapers. The big difference was how well this line delivered the yarn in the wind. I cast short and long and I am impressed.
So, for those of us who didn?t like the fresh water delicate presentation of the Trout Taper, yippee; we have a new fly line!
Here?s what Scientific Anglers says about this new product:
Sharkskin lines are Mist Green and available in sizes weight forward 5 thru 10. The price is $99.95.
