In a word...ESSENTIAL
Non stretch fly lines have revolutionised fly fishing in the same way braided lines swept through the specimen coarse world with many fly fisherman quick to capitalise on the benefits offered over conventional fly lines. As the name suggests, Sixth Sense fly line from Airflo is designed to put you directly in touch with every knock, touch and bite. If you’re not on it – it’s about time you were!
With the popularisation of braided lines for conventional fishing, it was only a matter of time before flylines went down the same route. With the Airflo Sixth Sense Fly Lines, Airflo has created a range of technically advanced fly lines with an extremely low stretch level that recreates the feel of a 'braided super line' for fly fishing.
Airflo Sales Director Gareth Jones and Welsh International Team Member explains; "Reducing the stretch level in a flyline gives huge advantages in terms of casting performance. The less stretch in the core, the less energy is lost during the cast, ask any tournament caster. Working with a new production process and core material has allowed us to produce a line with around 6% stretch as opposed to the normal 20%+ whilst maintaining almost zero memory. This minimal stretch level gives great bite detection and improved hook penetration even at extreme range. All Airflo Polyfuse XT Sixth Sense Fly Lines are 35yds long for long distance and will certainly suit the Stillwater flyfishers they have been designed for."
Originally headed up by long time fly angler and qualified engineer Paul Burgess in the late 80's, Airflo are now the worlds leading manufacturer of solvent free flylines and responsible for developing a series of innovations unparalleled by any other line manufacturer.
Let’s face it, who wouldn’t love a sixth sense to help put a few more fish on the bank, but joking aside, that’s exactly what a non stretch fly line can do. By putting you in direct contact with the fish you are able to convert many more ‘chances’ to fish on the bank. Hook holds are firmer and more secure, and the reduced stretch also eliminates vibration through the rod leading to smoother casting. A big all-round thumbs up from us.
