This is by far the most superior WF line ever produced for the modern fly fisher. The Shooter WF lines are developed with an advanced taper for a better feeling, control and presentation; a very refined tapering which works well for both overhead and spey-casting. Under demanding conditions, such as wind or a “no back-cast” situation, you will find our Shooter WF lines to be very unique and different from anything else you have ever tried.

When designing the heavier Shooter WF lines ‘16 grams/247 grains’ and ‘18 grams/278 grains’, we kept our focus on both hitch fishing and fishing with bombers for salmon and sea trout. Developing a WF line for this type of fishing is incredibly demanding, as you need to create a profile that has a strong turnover, yet still sets down gently on the water. Believe us, in this we have succeeded.

The Shooter WF lines ‘12 grams/185 grains’ and ‘14 grams/216 grains’ are developed for small wet flies and small dry flies served under the same tricky conditions as mentioned above.

The Shooter WF line is also made in a hover version, where the running line is floating, but the head is produced in a hover density, which places the head “just below” the surface of the water, depending on the speed of the current. This density is a perfect choice for fishing wet flies for salmon or big trout on the coast, lake or a in river where the conditions call for the line to be just beneath the surface.
