TRIANGLE TAPER PLUS FLY LINES....


Of the many innovations that Lee Wulff contributed to fly fishing, the Triangle Taper fly line is perhaps the most popular. The new Triangle Taper Plus offers all the advantages of the original, like the greatest delicacy of presentation,  PLUS lots more.  An Improved version of the traditional TT line, the TT PLUS is a 2-Tone Ivory front end and a Willow Green running line with a longer back taper to improve wear and mending ability.  It also features a front loop and the Tri-D line ID system that has the line size on the tip for an instant ID.

 Of the greatest importance to the bamboo fly caster, the Triangle Taper PLUS is a continuous forward taper in the head of the line, the first 32 to 40 feet, depending upon the size application. This provides the most efficient transfer of casting energy as it unrolls because the heavier line is constantly turning over lighter line. The design also gives you a more delicate presentation because the weight of the line is away from the fly. It is also the finest Roll Casting line for long, accurate roll casts. This combination of a longer weighted section and a light running line allows the Triangle Taper PLUS to be cast  just like a weight forward line for distance, when needed. The tip end can be customized to your casting style by cutting it back (by inches) for the desired performance level with a specific rod.

Since it's introduction, this unique Taper design has proved to have the added benefit of improving the casting performance of many fine bamboo fly rods. Because of the unique weight distribution and configuration of the line, it allows for a bit more weight to load the rod as the cast is extended, satisfying that sometimes very subtle need for a bit more line weight to properly load your cane rod and bring out its best casting characteristics.

 This is something that really must be experienced to be believed!   I’m not claiming these lines will make you a better caster or make a bad rod great, but, in my experience, (over the past 20+ or so years that I've been selling these lines),   I’ve found they consistently sweeten the feel of rods that are on the cusp, making them more enjoyable to use.  When planning the right size for your rod, add a line size to the stated weight, i.e., the #2 becomes more of a 2/3 line, a #3 more of a 3/4 line, and so forth. If you have a cane rod that needs tuning and often seems to cast better with the next heavier line, (but you fear you are over-lining it), try the appropriate Triangle Taper  PLUS line. You may be pleasantly flabbergasted!

PHOENIX  SILK  FLY  LINES

    The world’s first solid braided silk fly lines with an oil dressing was produced in England in 1880 by Eaton and Deller.  In 1908, P.D Malloch of Perth produced the most famous and successful of all silk  fishing lines, the KINGFISHER. This more than any other, set the standards for the manufacture and performance of all oil dressed silk lines.

WHY SILK?   Improved casting powers in both distance and accuracy. Silk gives the correct weight for smaller diameter. Less bulk landing on the water, therefore less disturbance. Will not stretch or crack. Less wind resistance. Soft and pliable (after break-in). Will last for years and years. Unaffected by extreme variations in temperature. Quicker, smoother lifts from the water. Taper built in at the time of braiding. Gives more speed and positive feel. Made by craftsmen with painstaking care.

REVIVING A TRADITION...Cheaper, synthetic fly lines and glass fiber rods signaled the demise of Kingfisher. There was a long hiatus where silk lines were not available. To the delight of those who set value by tradition, Noel Buxton, of England, in the late 1970’s, began hand crafting silk fly lines in the established manufacturing traditions of Kingfisher. The result was the Phoenix precision built fly line made of the finest quality Pure Chinese Silk with tapers built-in by braiding. These lines facilitated the most delicate presentation of the smallest flies.

Noel also demanded that the lines be of an intermediate density.  When greased, the line floats high on the surface film, un-greased it acts as a “slow sinker” and by de-greasing the tip, there is a “sink-tip” of variable proportions. This gives three options from one line.

The double tapered profile enables reversal of the line for longer use.

The special “proofing” of the line gives no “reel” memory and only minimum stretch to aid better hooking.

HANDCRAFTED QUALITY...Making silk lines by these traditional methods to produce the finest product possible is very labor intensive and time consuming, much as split cane rod building. For over 16 years, Noel Buxton manufactured the world’s finest silk lines in accord with a tradition spanning over 100 years. Now after two decades bamboo rod maker Mike Brookes continues making Phoenix lines in the same way for today’s fly-fishers who value the finest in tradition and performance.

The oils and varnishes ensure that the line is waterproof and supple. The Phoenix Line is so stable that it does not leach linseed oil and become tacky with age.

The special finish produces a line that shoots well, with the minimum of flash while maximizing silk’s added advantage of a smaller diameter for a given weight.
