The Ambush Clear Head adds a new dimension
to Ambush lines – stealth. Now a fly fisherman
can enjoy all the roll casting, Spey,
Skagit, switch and Scandi style casting advantages
of the ambush floating fly line with the
added benefit of a clear, 20' intermediate
sinking head. Intermediate sink rate 1.25 to
1.75 ips. The Ambush just got sneakier!


Floating/Intermediate, Lime Green/Clear
Sizes: 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10

New: Tri-D Line ID (Laser Printed Line ID on line) 


Gary Sandstrom, designer of the Ambush Line, talks about why he created it:

Originally designed on the Deschutes River in Oregon for fishing in areas with very little back cast room. I wanted a line that would load the rod with only 10-20 feet of line out, turn over large bead head flies with an indicator and shoot 30 feet with one roll cast. The first lines sizes, 4-6 (195-235 grains) were primarily for the trout guys. As switch rods became more popular as a tool for trout and light steelhead fishing, requests for larger sizes were answered with Ambush lines being made in sizes 7- 10 (266-400 grains). The tricky part in trying to line switch rods is some manufactures rate these rods as a true single hand, while others rate them as spey rods, both with the same line designation. Typically a good starting point for switch rods is an Ambush 8 weight (290 grains) will load a 5 weight switch rod, Ambush 9 for a 6wt switch and a Ambush 10 for a 7wt switch (rated for spey application). If the rod is a true single hand, then just match the same Ambush line weight to the rod line weight. Of course, the best thing to do is visit your local fly shop and see if they have some sample lines to cast or attend a spey event with your rod and cast the lines on the water. The next production of Ambush lines, the 11-14 weights (450-600 grains) are for the double handed casters that wanted a line with a very short head for fishing in really tight areas. They require a very short casting stroke and work best with the shorter 11-12 ½ foot rods typically used in fishing smaller rivers or big rivers with little or no room for a D-loop. These lines have a slightly longer head to accommodate the extra length in the rod. What I really like about the Ambush lines is that you can attach either a long mono leader, a poly leader of any density or a heavy chunk of T-14 and the line will still cast well. Another nice feature of Ambush lines is the integrated shooting line to head (no loops to hang up when casting short or when landing a fish ) and the cool two tone color, designed specifically for easy detection of the head/shooting line junction in low light conditions.

Ambush Fly Line by Royal Wulff

Tight quarters require specialized equipment. Arm yourself with the new Ambush Triangle Taper, designed to deliver heavy ordinance from single handed rods. With a short, 20 ft head that loads super fast, and makes a compact D-loop, eliminating the need for long backcast. The heavier head digs into the surface, slowing your downstream swing for perfect presentations. A thin running line coupled with J3 coating technology makes Ambush shoot like a rifle. And the Hi-Viz two-tone color helps you spot the loading point. If you want engage trout and steelhead in personal combat, Ambush them!

The floating line is designed with an extremely short, 20-foot, weighted front end, which is marked by a color change in the line, from lime green to blue. This change point makes it easy for casters to see the right amount of line with which to cast for optimal results. Roll casting is thus visually aided and more intuitive for the single hander. Traditional casting using a backcast, or double-haul is greatly enhanced with this front-heavy line.

But, like all Triangle Taper Fly lines, the very front section is made with a continuous taper down to the tip, which creates a lighter delivery at the business end of the line. So while it blasts like a canon, it lands like a feather.

And while the front end is heavily weighted for roll casting, the running line is thin for easy shooting and mending. The Ambush uses J3 coating technology which is an integrated lubricant/floatant in the line to keep it high, dry, and slippery.

Ambush Triangle Taper floating fly lines are available in sizes WFF 5, 6,7, and 8, and are offer a welded loop for easy leader attachment.

J3 Coating makes Triangle Tapers perform like never before: shooting better, floating higher, repelling water and lasting longer. This hard finish coating has a dry feel, which minimizes resistance for longer casts.
