There can be a lot of confusion when in comes to the new breed of fly lines. Between the coatings, textures, and tapers… there are endless combos and an specific line for any application or situation.
But what if you just want to throw streamers? I’m not talking about size 8 wooly buggers… more like big 10-15in muppets that target aggressive fish and powerful takes. Flies that push water and require heavy rods to throw.
If this your style of fishing, then you need the Scientific Angler Titan.
You wouldn’t drive a railroad spike with a small finishing hammer… and you don’t want to throw big streamers with a long fine taper dry fly line. The Titan has a lot of mass up front in the double taper. which allows for the delivery of big flies. You also get the ability to generate fast line speed with minimal backcast… which in non-geek-speak means less chance of crushing yourself with a large hook and more time with the fly in the water. The line has a color change at the back end of the head for easy visual reference of when to load and shoot.
Besides this big fly taper, another benefit of this line is the Textured surface. The surface of the line is dimpled like a golf ball…”The microreplicated surface features tiny dimples in the surface of the line. These structures help deliver big advantages that result in easier casting, low memory as well as increased longevity for the line.”
