Bonefish, Permit, and Tarpon, All on One Line. When targeting the toughest and most finicky trio in thesalt, only the most diverse line will do.We took our revolutionary AST Plus slickness additive and put it into the brand-new Amplitude Smooth Series. These lines are smooth like traditional lines, but have increased durability and slickness due to the AST Plus, which is mixed directly into our coatings.Each line is built with three colors to identify the separate parts of the line, and welded loops for quick and easy rigging.SA Amplitude Smooth lines are simply the finest smooth fly lines in the world and are available in a number of freshwater- and saltwater-specific tapers.
- Features the revolutionary AST Plus slicknessadditive for superior shooting ability and increaseddurability
- The perfect line for bonefish, tarpon, and permit onthe flats; also great for snook, redfish, and sea trout
- Overweighted by .75 sizes to load rods quickly; usedesignated line weight for your rod
- Short, powerful head turns over long leaders withheavy flies
- Core technology remains stiff and slick intropical environments
- SA AMP SMTH GR SLAM WF X F(X = line weight)
You think your floating line isn’t floating as well as it used to do, or isn’t as slick as it used to be? The reasons and the ways to fix this are probably pretty simple.Lines float because they are lighter than water, and because they are hydrophobic; they repel water. For lines to float their best, both of these features need to be working. The density of your line won’t change, it won’t absorb water and become waterlogged and sink, but if it gets dirty it won’t repel the water well and it will float lower in the surface tension and may get pulled under now and then. The key to good flotation is keeping your lines clean so the hydrophobic surface works.Cleaning with soap and water on a cloth removes most of the dirt, but cleaning pads work even better. Properly cleaned, your lines will float better, cast better and last longer, certainly a good trade-off for a couple of minutes of line maintenance.To use the cleaning pad, pinch the pad over the line so that the abrasive, non-foam side touches the line. Pull the fly line through the pad under some tension. Repeat this process until some of the fly line color is visible on the pad.Clean your lines every 2-3 outings, or anytime you think dirt is hindering their performance. The cleaning pads are easy to carry in your vest or tackle bag and can be used anytime, wet or dry.Note that flyline dressing can be used to reduce friction during competition- or practice casting scenarios, but we don’t recommend it for fishing.
