The Bonefish taper gives the angler the perfect mix of a gentle stealth presentation paired with the aggressiveness to combat high wind conditions and deliver long accurate casts. With an aggressive front-head design but with a more elongated belly and gradual rear taper this line will still shoot line effortlessly but will allow for a more delicate landing on the water which is key when fishing shallow flats to spooky Bonefish.
This new Phantom Tip series uses Monic’s new semi-stiff low-stretch saltwater core. The minimal stretch allows for excellent sensitivity and powerful hook-sets while still allowing to anneal/straighten the line easily with a simple hand stretch. This added stiffness will also help retain the character of the line in extreme heat.
The Phantom Tip 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, 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 Phantom Tip 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 Phantom Tip 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 Phantom Tips to be taken from freshwater to the grueling salt without having to worry about cracks, dry rot, and delamination.
All Phantom Tip – Bonefish lines are weighted on the heavy side of the true AFFTA standards. You can see the weight ranges in the chart pictured here (weights are measured from the first 30 ft of the head). 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.
