Conventional and Reverse Density

Conventional DensityThe conventional density design featuring the highest density in the tip of the fly line works as intended when the water pressure is low. Slow moving water allows the heavier density tip of the fly line to sink due to the lack of water pressure. The lighter rear end makes it easy to manually control the line speed.

Reversed Density: With this concept, sink-line fishing is made allot easier. These dual density lines have the Reverse Density compared to conventional shooting heads. Picking up and casting will be easier in running water. When the heavier rear end sinks, the lighter tip will be pushed down due to the water pressure. When lifting your rod-tip, the water pressure will make the line level out higher in the water. If you put your rod-tip down and leave some slack, the line will sink deeper and level out there. Control your  fishing depth to a large extent! The heavier density close to your rod tip transfer more energy from your rod into the line. You might cast longer than ever before. Try it!


A bad workman blames his tools. A bad fisherman blames his tools, the weather, wind interference, lazy fish, his star sign and the rotation of the Earth.

Don’t be a bad fisherman.
