What is in the reel bag?
(Scientific Anglers Sharkskin) When it comes to the latest in fly
fishing technology anglers turn to the team at SA. The company's new Sharkskin
lines have been making waves in the industry. By modifying the surface of the
fly line with a micro-repeating structure, it is possible to achieve surface
interface properties that mimic nature such as the ability of insects to walk on
water, the shedding and self-cleaning ability of Lotus leaves, or the adhesion
that allows a gecko to walk up vertical surfaces. Scientific Anglers Sharkskin
technology is a precise texturing process that embosses the surface of the fly
line coating with a repeating geometric micro-pattern. The finished surface is
no longer smooth, no longer exhibits unwanted line flash, and can be optimized
via the engineered shape, depth, and frequency of the pattern to yield greatly
improved line-to-water floatation, casting performance, and overall line
suppleness and durability. When it comes time to respool your reels this holiday
season Sharkskin lines are a quick and easy upgrade that makes sense.
Scientific Anglers Sharkskin lines
turn to nature for inspiration
