After more than 20 years of manufacturing some of the best fly lines on the market, Snowbee didn’t think it was possible to go any better... until now! The introduction of new Nano technology has enabled them to produce the softest, most supple and superior casting fly lines ever made!
The first line in the new series was the amazing Thistledown #2/5, designed for the river and light fishing on still waters. This is a single weight line suitable for applications across the range from #2 to #5wt. Now Snowbee have introduced a new Thistledown #5/7 line, designed for the heavier performance, longer leader, heavier flies set up, associated with stillwater fishing. Again, this is a single weight line, suitable for applications across the range from #5 to #7wt.
Both lines are two-tone in colour (Shamrock Olive head/Buckskin running line) and 90ft in total length. There is a short head of just 34.5ft which has a compound front taper and long slender running line for effortless casting and presentation, at whatever range is required. The ultra-thin profile, with a head diameter of just 0.65mm and running line of a mere 0.55mm, combined with the super-smooth Nano coating, allows the line to cut through the air with ease on whichever chosen rod, maintain line speed through the cast and has a tendency to produce a smile on every cast... this line has proved ‘astounding’ to many so far!
Both ends are pre-looped with micro-loops, to maintain the line’s outstanding performance, and ready to go straight from the box. These new Thistledown 2 fly lines feature a braided core for zero memory.
