Our Specialty Series Compact Sink Type 3 features a 28 ft. type 3 (3-4 IPS) sinking head with a short 3 ft. front taper for turning over large, air-resistant flies. The short 2 ft. back taper helps load this line quickly and makes it extremely shootable. Intermediate running line removes any hinges in the line and gives you a smooth transition into the depths.
This dual colored line features our low stretch braided nylon core for consistent, powerful hook sets and ultimate stopping power. Our signature Shooting Technology keeps your line remaining slick, supple and fast shooting. The brown and electric yellow color combination distinguishes taper change and is traceable yet stealthy in both freshwater and saltwater environments.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What Temperature Range will this line perform best in?
Our Compact Sink fly lines are built for both medium and warm water environments. This line will perform best in temperatures between 50 and 70+ degrees (F).
WHY IS THIS TAPER IDEAL FOR LARGE FLIES AND HEAVY WINDS?
The taper design for our Compact Sink Fly Lines were built overly aggressive to cast large flies, punch through wind and deliver flies where they need to go despite the conditions. The short body and short rear taper allows for minimal false casts while achieving maximum distance. The short front taper will turn over any large fly or weighted pattern with ease. This line is built overweighted for quick loading and fast shooting.
Why is this line 2 colors?
The brown and electric yellow color combination distinguishes taper change and proper loading point. The brown head paired with the electric yellow running line is extremely stealthy while traceable.
Great casting line. Can easily punch almost all the line in a 25 mph wind. Doesn’t tangle much and feels great to fish.
