Taper

Monic’s aggressive Javelin Taper is perfect for any angler seeking a more aggressive and easy casting line. The front-loaded design of the Javelin allows the angler to shoot line with ease when long casts are necessary or when windy conditions are a hindrance. Its more aggressive nature makes the line great for turning over cumbersome flies such as streamers, poppers, or heavy nymph and indicator rigs. Additionally, the increased mass in the initial belly portion of the head will more effectively load your rod with less line out – making for more efficient casts at close range.

Core

The Icicle utilizes a supple and relaxed braided fiber core. The low-to-moderate stretch rating gives the angler some shock absorbing properties and the ability to stretch the line by hand for relaxation, while still allowing for lower effort hook-sets. The core alone, by nature, holds zero reel memory helping to create a fly line that remains relaxed even while fishing in below-freezing temperatures.

Coating

The Icicle coating was designed to perform at a high level in all four seasons. The advanced coating blend will remain supple in colder temperatures while avoiding tack or stickiness during the warmer summer months or in tropical environments. The plastics involved are 100% naturally buoyant, creating a high-floating fly line that will NOT begin to sink over time.

Unlike many other fly lines that tend to lose their slickness due to surface treatments or chemicals leeching out of the plastic, Monic’s Icicle coating utilizes our proprietary STS slickness technology that has been expertly formulated and uniformly mixed within the plastic blend. This results in an extremely low friction surface that will shoot through rod guides like a dream but will NOT dissipate or migrate out of the plastic during the life of the line. This means, with occasional cleaning, your line will cast the same seasons later as it did right out of the package, even if fished in hard saltwater environments.

As with all Monic Fly Lines, the Icicle boasts superb durability. The non-PVC coating will NOT leech chemicals, absorb water, or begin to break down merely from regular use. You should expect 2-3 times the lifespan compared to a traditional PVC based fly line.

Line Weights  

All Icicle Javelin Taper lines are a half size above the AFFTA standards. You can see the weight ranges in the chart pictured below (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.

  • OnTheDropper Self Adjusting Lineclamp
    SKU: NFD9263

    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.
