Multi-time winner of Best New Fly Line award at the EFTTEX show in Europe, the revolutionary XS-Plus Thistledown2 fly line is one line for multiple rod weights.

Yes, the XS-Plus Thistledown2 fly line doesn’t come in designated line weights, but line weight ranges! The #1-4wt line works on rod weights #1, #2, #3, and #4. The #2-5wt line works on rod weights #2, #3, #4, and #5 and the #5-7wt works on rod weights #5, #6, and #7! 

Primarily designed for streams, rivers, and light fishing on small still waters, the XS-Plus Thistledown2 line has now become a regular companion in almost any application where an angler enjoys lightweight finesse, stealth, and accuracy. Our new Nano Coating Technology featured on this line has enabled us to produce the softest, most supple, best casting, and longest lasting fly lines in our history. Improvements in braided core technology allow us to apply a slightly thicker outer Nano coating, allowing the line to float higher, all while still retaining the same diameter. The importance of retaining the slim diameter was critical, as the line is designed to have the optimum diameter and profile that creates hardly any drag when casting. This is what makes the Thistledown2 special, as the “load weight” factor becomes less critical for casting performance and the nominated rod weight becomes less important in achieving a cast.

Silky-smooth finish and thin diameter mean the line speed can be maintained throughout the casting action and the line delivers the fly precisely where required, with minimum effort. The XS-Plus Thistledown2 has zero memory issues, and with both ends pre-looped with welded micro-loops, it’s ready to go straight from the box.

Both the lines are two-tone in color, Shamrock Olive head with Buckskin running line.Bottle of Line Slick included.

Features:

  • Core, Primer and Nano-Tec coating combine to the thinnest, most supple, weight forward profile possible.
  • Available in 1-4 wf, 2-5wf, and 5-7wf versions.
  • Optimum diameter and profile creates hardly any drag when casting

Snowbee Spectre Distance Fly Line

Snowbee XS-Plus Spectre Distance Fly Line

$75.00

Line Weight

The XS-Plus Spectre Distance Floating fly line will provide long and accurate casts when fishing dries, buzzers, and damsels in stillwater and larger river systems where distance is needed to reach targets in difficult fishing conditions. 

The NEW Spectre Distance series fly lines have a new profile, extending their range compared to our traditional XS fly lines. All Spectre Distance fly lines are 30ft longer in total length to account for their outstanding performance. The rear taper on the Spectre Distance fly lines start at a much extended 39ft, nearly a third longer than normal XS lines! This provides a manageable load point much longer than normal, so where back-cast room allows, a significantly longer cast can be achieved without having to add bulk to the fly line.

Snowbee lines are renowned for being very slim and the XS-Plus Spectre Distance Floating line is no different. The head lengths are extended to add weight. This allows the slim fly line to cut through the wind while being less affected by wind resistance, and with a longer head already extended, the cast automatically travels further. The slim running line then comes into play, and this combination accounts for the increased line length of 120ft rather than the standard 90ft.

Powertaper Pocketwater Leader

Snowbee XS Floating Fly Line

$72.00

Line Weight

Snowbee XS Floating Fly Lines - New 'Nano Coating Technology' (NCT), has enabled Snowbee to produce the softest, most supple, superior casting and now longer lasting fly lines than they have ever made before. The smaller Nano particles result in a silky smooth surface finish and a more dense material, so whether sinking or floating there is now a finer, more durable silky finished profile achieving the same performance. The results have been outstanding but profile and design of course have still been equally crucial and surprisingly, not an exact science. The XS Floating Fly Line is the flagship of the Snowbee Fly Lines, without a doubt one of the best floating fly lines available today. The unique combination of ultra-low friction coating, superbly balanced profile, and outstanding shootability make this fly line the line of choice to enhance the performance of the world’s best fly rods. Available in original Ivory.

Snowbee XS Plus Nymph Line

Snowbee XS-Plus ED Roll-Cast

$75.00

Line Weight

Snowbee XS-Plus ED Roll Cast Fly Lines -  The twin coloured, Snowbee XS Plus ED Roll Cast Fly Line is a specialist line, designed to help you achieve distance if you are not able to produce a full back cast due to your surroundings. It is designated ED, for Edgardo Dona, the Italian Casting legend who designed the profile of this line for Snowbee. This fly line was awarded the ‘Best New Fishing Product' at the Tackle and Gun show and ‘Tackle Testers Choice’ in Trout Fisherman. This new concept in fly line design is sure to be a favourite due to it's remarkable capabilities.
This line has been designed for use on lakes and is a long belly, floating line. This line features a 60ft long Spey style head with a steep rear taper and a long front taper, with a 60ft running line behind it. The design of the line is to create an effective roll cast to achieve exceptional casting distance with no back cast necessary.
The head of this line is weighted for optimum performance and so it casts beautifully off the surface. Some of the best situations to use this line are if you are next to a large amount of trees or when back casting can be fraught with risk of snagging and lost fishing time.
This fly line includes Snowbee's nano coating technology which uses smaller Nano particles for a silk smooth finish and a denser material. This makes the line incredibly supple and soft for superior casting ability and durability.
The Snowbee XS Plus ED Roll Cast Fly Line is available in a #6, #7 and #8 floating line in a Buckskin/Hi-Vis Yellow color and includes a bottle of line slick and loops.

Snowbee XS Plus Nymph Line

Snowbee XS-Plus Nymph Line
SPFL-DT2/5NL

$72.00

Snowbee XS-Plus Nymph Line -  Like the Thistledown, this is also a single “Uni-weight” fly line with a mono core. It is a floating line designed specifically with river nymphing in mind. It boasts a short 6ft front taper, reducing to a fine 0.55mm diameter tip. The long, level belly is similarly slim at 0.65mm diameter throughout, before the matching 6ft back taper makes it fully reversible. Both tapers are high-viz Orange color for optimum visibility and “fine take” detection and feel. The reversible double taper line is 75ft in length and is micro-looped at both ends for finesse and immediate use. While this line may not perform in casting like a conventional weight forward, when used on a long light rod, one can achieve incredible control at range and with long tapered leaders whether “light nymphing,” “Juan Style” with dries or short range “Czech-nymphing,” the control and sensitivity that can be achieved is extreme! With a long fine leader, it is possible to present a fly at a range of up to 40ft with no fly line on the water whatsoever. Control of Tenkara proportions perhaps, but with a feel for even greater diversity, control, and casting where required. Using this line can be an art but in the right hands, extreme finesse and induced take methods can be applied for incredible success on the most difficult and wary of fish.

Snowbee XS Plus Delicate Presentation

Snowbee XS Delicate Presentation Floating

$72.00

Line Weight

Snowbee XS-Delicate Presentation Fly Line -  This line was originally designed for delicate presentations on rivers, but if anybody thought that rivers were the limit they would be mistaken. The Continuous Rear Taper (CRT) profile has surprised many when demonstrating and dry fly casting on still waters using the #5 or #7 versions have proved to be effortless with this line. The long shallow front taper gives superb, controlled turn over and allows the most delicate presentation of dry flies at both short and long distance. The short parallel belly allows quick loading at short range, but this is where the similarities with traditional lines end. The rear end of the belly runs into a continuous rear taper (CRT) which is in effect an extended rear taper, running all the way to the end of the line. This CRT allows smooth, progressive energy transfer whether roll casting at short distances or presenting a dry fly to a rising trout at maximum casting range. Bottle of Line Slick included.
