Snowbee ‘Switch’ Floating Fly Lines
Profiles to perfectly match and complement our Prestige Switch rods. Modern day Switch lines are a little like a ‘compressed’ Spey line, with a short, heavy head similar to a shooting head profile, but in the popular ‘Skagit’ style. The difference however, is that the bulk of the weight is at the back of the head, to provide the power to create tight D-loops and effortless distance. A long shallow front taper provides a smooth energy transfer for controlled and accurate presentation. To enhance this, Switch lines are ideally fished with a Snowbee Poly-Coated Leader, allowing different fishing depths, depending on the density used. A short, steep rear taper compresses the weight into the head, where it’s needed and connects smoothly to a fine diameter, continuous running line for minimum friction and maximum shootability.
Snowbee 'Switch' Intermediate Fly Line
By popular request we have now launched a new Intermediate Switch line with a sinking density of approximately 1.5ips. Constructed with the same profile as the popular floating line, and pre-looped at both ends, this line has a slow sinking Olive coloured head and a floating Fluorescent Orange running line. Similar to the floating line, this is best fished with a short poly leader of similar density or faster, to achieve the ultimate in performance and presentation and ideal for fishing from the bank or wading.
