General-Purpose Sinking Fly Line.
Canít decide what to fish for? Our WetCel general-purpose sinking line is a simple, no-frills, weight-forward sinking fly line perfect for throwing nymphs and streamers to trout, bass, or panfish in streams, rivers, or lakes. It may not cost a lot, but that certainly doesnít mean the WetCel wonít get the job done.
- Several different sink rates available to target a variety of species.
- Sink Rates: Sink 2 = 1.75 Ė 2.75 ips.
- Braided multifilament core.
- Intermediate on monofilament core.
- You think your floating line isnít floating as well as it used to do, or isnít 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 wonít change, it wonít absorb water and become waterlogged and sink, but if it gets dirty it wonít 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 donít recommend it for fishing.
