“Streamer fishing is about getting that big nasty streamer in front of the fish. To catch fish, streamers need to get down to that prime strike zone, and stay in it. This fly line helps deliver the fly accurately through easy casting, but gets down and allows the retrieve to stay in the prime depth.
The Sonar Titan Intermediate/ Sink 3/ Sink 5 combines many of the great technologies which Scientific Anglers is known for. Integrating a normal tapered fly line with a fast sinking tip, this streamer line is easy to cast and effectively gets the fly down. As the name suggests, it includes three different sink rates through the fly line. The first 35’ is Sink 5, with a sink rate of 6 ips (inches per second). It also includes a short powerful taper on the head of the line allowing quick, easy casting with heavy bugs. The next 20’ is made of Sink 3, with a sink rate of 3.5 ips. This section performs nicely as the handling line. The final 45’ is the running line, it is intermediate sink rated at 1.25 ips.
