Monic’s Traditional weight-forward taper is perfect for the all-around angler, whether its big game fishing down in the tropics to small mountain trout streams. With its symmetrical front and rear tapers along with the moderate length belly, this head design will allow you to perform almost any presentation without needing multiple line set-ups. The shorter front and rear tapers allow you to shoot line and turn over large streamers or indicator rigs, while the evenly loaded, level belly section gives the angler control over the aggressiveness of their presentation for when delicate top-water offerings are key.
The Henley Clear series utilizes our exclusive MoniCORE. This is a brand new proprietary monofilament we have been developing for over a year. This non-nylon based mono has superb clarity and is naturally more relaxed than any monofilament core we have ever worked with to date. This creates an exceptionally clear and stealthy line that holds far less coil than fly lines based on traditional nylon monofilament. Our MoniCORE has moderate to low stretch, allowing the angler to easily relax or straighten the fly line while also providing shock absorbing properties and consistent tension for landing those extra large species. MonicCORE’s versatility allows you to take the stealthy covert nature of the Henley Clear from the flats in the tropics to the chilly mountain creeks and rivers.
Henley Clear series coating provides the angler with the ultimate stealth presentation fly line. The Phantom Tip version provides the best of both worlds, with a 15 foot clear stealth tip (from front loop to mid belly), while the remainder of the line is a bright green color making it easier to track the line in the air and on top of the water to give the angler a reference point for their fly. Most fish species, due to how their bodies are constructed as well as their feeding patterns, generally focus their eyes forward and up toward the surface of the water. This is why many fish can spook or become hesitant to feed if they can see thick bright fly lines casting overhead or lying across the top of the water. With the Henley Clear this is not an issue! This naturally buoyant coating has been expertly formulated for outstanding clarity while minimizing shine from sunlight to create a fly line that is nearly invisible on the waters surface. Its extremely smooth texture-free surface produces very little friction between the line and rod guides allowing you to shoot line with ease whether its cold or warm. The toughness of the Henley Clear coating produces a more durable, longer lasting fly line compared to most conventional PVC constructed fly lines. Its high abrasion resistance helps these lines hold up in some of the most brutal fishing conditions where rough coral, sharp rocks, and heavy surf can break down other lines in just a few outings. This allows the Henley Clears to be taken from freshwater to the grueling salt without having to worry about cracks, dry rot, and delamination.
All Henley Clears are weighted a half size above the AFFTA standards. You can see the weight ranges in the chart pictured here (weights are measured from the first 30 ft of the head). All of our lines manufactured here at Monic are constructed at or just above the AFFTA standards. Many fly lines in today’s market are vastly over-weighted, sometimes up to 3 sizes. At Monic, we understand that not every angler is using a fast action rod or wants an ultra-heavy fly line forced into their hands. That is why we want to leave the decision up to you. After all, nobody knows your rod and fishing style better than you do.

Do you like to walk around and carry fly line basket?
No, it is quite an obstacle!
An alternative is line clips of various kinds and you have probably seen more than one model before but this is a little different as it adjusts to how much or how thick the fly line is in the clip, this means that you do not need to screw it on to make it pinch with the right force.
The fact that it adjusts itself also means that you avoid the jerks that can occur when you shoot the line.
Sorry, only in Swedish lingo….
