Scierra Brook II fly line £29.99

Trout Fisherman (UK) - - Tackle -

THIS spe­cial­ist ‘short head’ float­ing line is aimed at the an­gler who is after ac­cu­racy and light line pre­sen­ta­tion for top of the wa­ter work whether it be on small rivers or still­wa­ters. The 82-foot line is two-tone in colour with a white 26-foot head length and a grey run­ning line and is avail­able in a weight for­ward pro­file in line sizes 2 to 6. Un­like other lines in the Scierra port­fo­lio, this one does not come with welded loops or laser printed line id at the front end. The line is sup­plied on a wide spool which re­ally helps in keep­ing ini­tial line mem­ory to a min­i­mum. It is built around a braided ny­lon core which is fairly low stretch along its length. As I ran the line through my fin­gers I couldn’t de­tect any im­per­fec­tions and found it to have a silkys­mooth PVC coat­ing. I had a 5wt on test and matched it up to both a fast and a mid­dle to tip ac­tion 9ft rod. The line’s shorter head length made quick work of load­ing the rod and the sub­se­quent line shoot was slick and ac­cu­rate with very good turnover. At short and medium range the line worked an ab­so­lute treat and did what­ever I asked of it, A slightly longer cast­ing stroke al­lowed me to gain some im­pres­sive dis­tance and al­though the head is short it is very well bal­anced, al­low­ing me to hang it out­side the rod tip for even more length on the cast.

VER­DICT:

Be­ing able to load the rod quickly makes this line ideal when you are tight for cast­ing space, whether on a stream or still­wa­ter, and the turnover and pre­sen­ta­tion you can achieve is very nice in­deed.
