Airflo - Sixth Sense Sinking
Based on the same technology as the incredible Sixth Sense flylines, Airflo have created a small range of flylines that sink in a U shape profile.
With the recent popularity of the 'washing line' technique, we realised that creating a U shape retrieve path actually allows the fly to fish through a range of depths effectively, during a single cast.
Sweep lines follow this U sink path by increasing the sink speed of the belly section of the flyline to be faster than the tip and running line.
The use of power core, reduces tangles significantly and helps sets the hooks despite the belly in the line - something that was always a problem with the old Hi-D type lines.
Sweep is not the line for early season when fish are hugging the bottom, but as a searching line when the fish are moving up and down throughout the water column, it is an extremely effective line.
When boat fishing, this line creates a far sharper angle on the final lift and this almost vertical action is extremely deadly for strip and hang techniques.
Available in Di5 and and Di7 belly sink rates - the tip of the Di5 sinks at 3.5" per sec and the Belly sinks at 5" per sec - on the Di7 version the tip sinks at 5" per sec and the belly sinks at 7" per second.
All lines are 35yds long - you'll need it!!
