Thistledown²

This updated model of the original Thistledown line by Snowbee builds on the original innovation to produce one of the most diverse casting fly lines in the market right now.

The Thistledown was primarily designed for the river and light fishing on small still waters but is now a regular companion on almost any application where an angler enjoys finesse, stealth, and accuracy. The head is quite short at just 34.5ft which has a long, compound front taper and a slender running line behind for effortless casting and extended presentation, to attain whatever range is necessary. Both ends are pre-looped, with hand-whipped micro-loops, to maintain the line's outstanding performance, so it is ready to go, straight from the box.

The optimum diameter and profile creates hardly any drag when casting. That means the 'load weight' factor becomes less critical to casting performance and the nominated rod weight becomes less important in achieving the cast. The new and refined components for these lines, being Core, Primer and Nano-Tec coating, combine to give the thinnest, most supple , weight forward profile possible. They still weigh very little but deliver incredible stealth and accuracy at the same time. The silky smooth finish and the thin diameter means the line speed can be maintained throughout the casting action and delivers the fly precisely where required, with minimum effort. Even across a gale force wind this line has been used to great effect and will cut through almost any breeze with its drag coefficient being so small. 

Thistledown was primarily designed for river and light fishing on small stillwaters but is now a regular companion on almost any application where an angler enjoys lightweight finesse, stealth and accuracy. For the heavier performance longer leader, heavier flies set up, associated with stillwater fishing, there is now the Thistledown² in the heavier #5-#7wt option. Both the lines are two-tone in colour, Shamrock Olive head with Buckskin running line. 

This line has proved ‘astounding’ to many so far, been on the receiving end of countless rave reviews since awarded Best New Fly Line in Europe at EFTTEX 2014 and production remains at full pace to keep up with demand! 

Colour: Olive/Buckskin 

Available in 2 sizes: WF2-5 Floating & WF5-7
