The salt specialist


REEL Fly Fishing specializes in quality fly lines that offer you specific tapers, designs and abilities for each of the ranges. The Salty series weight forward floating line is a versatile line that is purpose built for salt water. The 30ft head weight for the Salty series leans towards a heavily weighted grain of the AFFTA approved fly line weight specifications. This robust taper translates into a line that rapid loading on fast to extra-fast action fly rods and is great option for fly casters looking to chase species in the waves or from a boat. The Salty series works exceptionally well in the slightly cooler waters of the Cape regions.


The Taper


The weight forward taper on the Salty series is the ultimate line for salt water fly angler. The taper has a shortened heavily overweight head design offering quicker loading and improved accuracy even in the wind. The moderate length belly lends itself well to performing longer casts with accurate presentation. The short front taper and short read taper create an almost bulleted like shape to really shoot lines out with ease.


The Salty range also features a host of specialized additives to the outer coating that further increase durability, reduce friction and increase line speed while passing through the guides as well as improving rigidity.


The Core

All our fly lines at REEL Fly Fishing make use of a multi-strand braided core construction. The advantages of our braided core technology mean no stretch, no memory and vast improved feedback into your fly rod and hands. PE or Polyethylene is an incredible strong fiber that is used in braided fishing lines as well as in the REEL fly line cores. Braided fibers offer high strength to weight and diameter ratios while almost eliminating stretch and enhancing feedback.
