Spectre Saltwater Fly Rods 
10019 Spectre Saltwater/Predator Fly Rod 9’ #8 
With the ever increasing popularity of saltwater, carp and pike fly fishing, for 2018 we have added a new Saltwater Predator model to the Spectre range. This is not just the standard rod with a different logo! Purpose-designed for the requirements of these fly fishing disciplines, the blanks have steeper tapers and thicker wall profiles to handle the larger, more powerful fish likely to be encountered. Brushed aluminium-finish reel seat and high chrome guides, make the Spectre SP stand out from the crowd! 
'Spectre' Fly Reels 
The multi-disc cork and stainless steel centre drag, offers superb performance, with minimal startup inertia, while the large arbor design allows faster retrieve, more consistent drag performance and minimal line memory. 
The stainless steel main spindle coupled with the one-way roller clutch bearing, provides instant drag control, when that ‘smash take’ catches you by surprise. 
Extra hard paint finish for salt-water and chip resistance, quick release spool and easy left to right hand conversion, makes the Spectre the perfect choice, for long, untroubled fishing use.The extended range covers all requirements from the smallest brook fishing up to salmon, sea trout and saltwater. Complete with a Neoprene reel case, this range offers unmatched performance coupled with value for money.

XS-Plus Tropics Saltwater Fly Lines 

Saltwater fly lines covering all the options required by the progressive saltwater fly fisher. 
By careful manipulation of our ‘Nano Technology’ coating material, we have developed a new coating which is harder than usual, to withstand the rigours of the saltwater environment, but more importantly, retains its characteristics, even in the searing heat of the tropics, or on the hot deck of a flats skiff. This allows us to retain a core line, which ensures the supple, memory-free properties, customers have come to know and expect from a Snowbee fly line. This also makes the new range ideal for temperate climates, when fishing for striped or European bass. 
TSWP-F Tropics Floating ‘Presentation' Line 
A floating line with a longer head and extended tapers, designed for smaller flies and precise presentation. The ideal line when ‘sight fishing’ for bonefish, permit, jacks etc., where a smooth and quiet ‘lay-down’ of the fly is essential. The colour change at the back of the head, notifies the precise shoot point, which together with the fine running line makes distance casting effortless. 
Colour: Lt.Blue/Aqua 
Sizes: #7 - #10 
Sink Rate: Floating 
TSWBF-F Tropics Floating 'Big Fly' Line 
Short, steep tapers and a short head designed for turning over big flies in confined spaces. Ideal when fishing big flies in amongst mangroves, or overhanging vegetation for tarpon, or any ‘open water’ application where big flies are essential. A colour change for the running line notifies the precise shoot point when longer casts are required. 
Colour: Aqua/Dk.Blue 
Sizes: #8 - #12 
Sink Rate: Floating 
TSWS-ST Tropics ‘Spectre’ Line 
For a more ‘stealthy’ approach the ‘Spectre’ line has the same long head profile as our Presentation line, for delicate presentation. A floating head and running- line, with a 12ft clear intermediate tip. The 2-2.5ips tip will take flies down deeper, without spooking the quarry. 
Colour: Clear/Aqua 
Sizes: #7 - #12 
Sink Rate: 2-2.5ips 
TSWDC-FS Tropics 'Depth Charge' Line 
When you need to get down deep and fast with either short or long casts, our new Tropics ‘Depth-Charge’ delivers on all counts. The short, shooting head profile and fine running line, will punch through a stiff wind effortlessly, whilst the 5-6 ips fast-sink head will get your fly down fast, to the ‘strike zone’. The colour change at the back of the head, notifies the precise 'shoot point' making distance casting effortless. 
Colour: Graphite/Aqua 
Sizes: #8 - #12 
Sink Rate: 5-6ips 

Saltwater Fly Selections 

Sea Trout, Salmon and Surf 
These selections offer a range of uncomplicated, modern patterns in striking colours and designs, plus a few of the old faithful, like the traditional Scottish salmon patterns in popular hook sizes. The salmon singles are tied on a selection of traditional black and modern nickel silver hooks whilst the sea trout patterns need no introduction either. These are a simple, select range of the most popular traditional sea trout patterns plus a modern card containing stinger trebles on wake flies, which when testing, accounted for some great fishing and all have a unique habit of going savagely ‘bump’ in the night! Finally, there is a small card of popular Bass Deceiver patterns for prospecting off the shore for that most illustrious of saltwater predators.

Also included is a mixed selection containing some mobile and light casting pike flies plus a full ‘weed less’ card, for that stealthy presentation amongst the snags.
