The XS-Plus Spectre Distance Fast-Sink fly line has a sink rate of 5 ips and will also provide the ability to reach drop-offs at long range. The Fast-Sink has the ability to get down quickly to fish along the bottom, early season with boobies, and to search at depth from a boat in typical summertime conditions. The floating running line will gradually pull sub-surface with the weight of the sinking lines, to provide the perfect direct contact to the flies, without any slack for enhanced bite detection.
The NEWSpectre Distance series fly lines have a new profile, extending their range compared to our traditional XS fly lines. All Spectre Distance fly lines are 30ft longer in total length to account for their outstanding performance. The rear taper on the Spectre Distance fly lines start at a much extended 39ft, nearly a third longer than normal XS lines! This provides a manageable load point much longer than normal, so where back-cast room allows, a significantly longer cast can be achieved without having to add bulk to the fly line.
Snowbee lines are renowned for being very slim and the XS-Plus Spectre Distance Floating line is no different. The head lengths are extended to add weight. This allows the slim fly line to cut through the wind while being less affected by wind resistance, and with a longer head already extended, the cast automatically travels further. The slim running line then comes into play, and this combination accounts for the increased line length of 120ft rather than the standard 90ft.
