Snowbee Thistledown Fly Line

Snowbee XS-Plus Thistledown Fly Line

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 #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 2-5wf and 5-7wt versions.
  • 2-5wt version can be used on 1wt rods with great accuracy
  • Optimum diameter and profile creates hardly any drag when casting

Snowbee Spectre Distance Fly Line

Snowbee XS-Plus Spectre Distance Fly Line

$79.99

Sink Rate
Line Weight

The new Snowbee XS Plus Spectre Distance Fly Line series has been purpose-designed for amazing casting even in the hands of less experienced fly fishers. 
For many years the XS floating fly line has been a flag ship product for Snowbee with perfect profile and memory free presentation. Now with the development of Nano Coating technology Snowbee have not only improved all their fly lines, but they've been working to produce a new XS-Plus Spectre fly line, with a profile that can produce equally effortless, but longer casts without having to be a tournament caster.

Each of the new Spectre Distance lines have the same 47ft length head, but to help achieve the benefit of longer casts with much the same casting ability, the profiles have been ‘tweaked’ to optimise performance, with all casting abilities. The 7ft front taper allows good turnover at longer range, while the 8ft rear taper provides a range over which a good cast can still be achieved, whether the optimum head length has been precisely aerialised, or not.

All the lines have a floating running line that will gradually pull sub-surface, with the weight of the sinking lines, to provide the perfect direct contact to the flies, without any slack, for enhanced bite detection.

$74.99

Line Weight

Snowbee XS-Plus Nano-Tec 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.

Floating. The flagship of the range, 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.

Snowbee XS-Plus Nano-Tec 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.

Roll-Cast. 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. The Intermediate ED Roll Cast Fly Line is also available in #6, #7, and #8 and has an Olive/Hi-Vis Yellow color.

The results have been outstanding but profile and design of course have still been equally crucial and surprisingly, not an exact science.

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

$74.99

Snowbee XS-Plus Nano-Tec 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.

Delicate Presentation. This line was originally designed for “Thistle Down” 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.

WFST XS Intermediate Sink Tip: A sink tip line which exhibits superb casting performance with a 13ft intermediate density sink tip which will hold sub-surface, giving straight line contact with the fly to avoid missed takes while depth control is achieved through speed of retrieve. Ideal for serious trout and steelhead anglers. Sink Rate: 1.2-1.8 ips, Color: Mustard/Ivory
WFND XS Nuetral Density: The super slow, uniform sink rate of this line designed to “hang” just below the surface. Too many lines sink quickly below invisible subsurface fish, but this one, once its cuts through the surface, sinks very slowly with immense control and feel, and delightfully memory free but super sensitive low-stretch core in a neutral color. There is not a line made today that will match it. Sink Rate: 1.14-1.86 ips, Color: Mustard
WFI XS Clear Intermediate: The combination of Snowbee XS performance with virtual invisibility makes this versatile line deadly for all sub-surface fishing, whether Chironomid fishing, nymphing, Steelhead fishing, or saltwater. Minimal stretch for ultimate feel, this is a stealth fishing line that every angler should carry on one of their spare spools. Sink Rate: 1.5-2.5 ips, Color: Clear

Snowbee XS-Plus Nano-Tec 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.

This series of long head, long casting, sink-tip fly lines fills the void between the hugely successful Buzzer Line and our conventional sinking fly lines. All feature 50ft heads and 120ft in total length, with the pastel shades and clear tip in all cases, to minimize spooking of any fish. The two tip length options and two sink densities of the range provide a diverse option for perfect control using this increasingly popular modern fishing style. The clear and fine tapered tips of either 7 or 12 feet in length on each density, serve to enhance minimal hinging and any potential casting “kick,” characteristic of multi-density and sink-tip fly lines. All are great for stillwater methods but will be versatile in a range of conditions.  
XS-Plus Countdown 2 Sink-Tip WFCDS2-7ST : In a pastel shade of primrose, this is the slowest sinking option in the series. With a 7ft clear tip, and super slick XS-Plus Nano coated and low stretch monofilament core, the line is well equipped for extreme casting and maximum sensitivity, just beneath the surface even at range. Color: Clear/Primrose, Tip Length: 7 ft. Sink Rate: 2 ips
XS-Plus Countdown 2 Sink-Tip WFCDS2-12ST : This line has a longer sinking tip for reaching deeper and fishing a long slow nymph cast, but also handy for “washing line” and strip methods immediately sub surface. Color: Clear/Buckskin, Tip Length: 12 ft. Sink Rate: 2 ips
XS-Plus Countdown 4 Sink-Tip WFCDF4-7ST : A great casting line, with a faster sinking tip that will get the files off the top at speed, will fish “sink and draw” well from bank or boat, or again with the “washing line” adding some depth to the top dropper. A great long casting and pulling line too, for the fast retrieve. Color: Clear/Lime, Tip Length: 7 ft. Sink Rate: 4 ips
XS-Plus Countdown 4 Sink-Tip WFCDF4-12ST : The fastest Snowbee sink tip. With a 12ft, 4ips tip, this line will fish buzzers and nymphs deep from a boat or bank and with a 50ft head will fish at range too, if required. The XS Nano finish provides smooth, finger-tip touch control of the retrieve and completes the new sink tip series. Suitable for getting down into deep pits on the river if necessary. Color: Clear/Blue, Tip Length: 12 ft. Sink Rate: 4 ips

This range has been specifically designed to combine precise sink rates with maximum casting distance. The fly angler can reach extended drop-offs and target deep lying fish, with a line slick enough to do so without the fear and frustration of memory coils and constant tangles Each line is low stretch for sensitivity and twin-colored to highlight the optimum loading point for distance casting and performance, the long heads will deliver a line at extreme range from bank or boat, in order to achieve the necessary depth for deep feeding fish. Suitable for fresh or cold saltwater and available in sizes WF #6, #7, and #8.   
XS-Plus Countdown 2 (Green) WFCD2 : In olive green with a sky-blue running line to help avoid spooking fish but visible to see for fishing depth and control of retrieve. Sink rate is 2ips (inches per second), perfect for fishing nymphs or lures beneath the surface on rivers or stillwater, close in or at long range. Color: Olive/Sky Blue, Sink Rate: 2 ips
XS-Plus Countdown 3 (Tan) WFCD3 : With a sink rate of 3ins/sec this line has been designed for fishing nymphs or lures in more moderate depths, especially when the wind is up or with a booby on the point to provide a washing line style of fishing. Ideal when the fish are at a depth of 2-3ft and you can get there easily within a few seconds. Twin color, chestnut brown head with light tan running line.  Color: Brown/Light Tan, Sink Rate: 3 ips
XS-Plus Countdown 5 (Red) WFCD5 : A great casting line with dark brown head providing a sink rate of 5ins/sec and a distinctive, silky smooth blood red running line. Really versatile for a team of sunk lures fished deep and slow, or ripped through the upper surfaces on a windy day. A great mid-water booby line too and phenomenal casting ability with the long head and no memory. Also suitable as a predator line in upper sizes, which will turnover easily and provide extreme casting ability. Color: Brown/Red, Sink Rate: 5 ips
XS-Plus Countdown 7 (Deep Blue) WFCD7 : The fastest sinking Snowbee line yet. The density of the charcoal grey head provides a sink rate of 7ins/sec, ideal for deep sinking lures, nymphs, and boobies off the boat or really quick sinking for boobies and exploring the depths from the bank. The deep blue running line aids angler visibility without spooking the fish. The profile and density provide an excellent distance casting line, capable of quickly reaching the bottom in over 20ft of water. This line will sink about as far as you can cast with a memory free profile that aids casting on the roughest of days. Color: Charcoal/Deep Blue, Sink Rate: 7 ips
