At 40 yards long, this is the ultimate competitor fly line. Featuring two different sinking densities in certain sections of the line to give a sink and retrieve path like no other. These competitor lines are designed to sink deeper at the front, creating an angle ideal for fishing the hang. A great pulling line!
As true masters of sinking line technology, Airflo were the guys who created density compensation, low stretch cores and a standardised sink rate system, revolutionising the UK stillwater scene in the process.
Designed with two sinking densities, heavier density head than the running line, these lines feature an almost vertical retrieve path and a sinking angle of around 45 degree.
For example, the Di 5 line – this has a head length of 44feet in a sinking density of 5ips – DI 5 – and the back of the line has a sinking density of 3ips – DI 3. These two different densities allows the fly line to sink head first, causing an exaggerated sinking profile. This angle would be perfect for fishing close to the bottom of the bank, or fishing the contours from a boat. Also, the profile is ideal for fishing the hang at depth!
The Di 7- Di 8 has already proved to be one of the best ‘Boobying' lines around, winning most of the competitions early season last year. A line which casts 40 yards and sinks like a stone is sure to put more fish in the boat. Aided by the coloured markers throughout, depth is easy to control and the fishing depth of your flies is relate to. Fishing the hang has never been easier by these 3ft long markers.
