Leland Sonoma Instructor's Trout Fly Line, 5wt
The unique way we deliver our lure
(the fly) is the defining attribute of the sport of fly fishing.
Although we call this fly casting, the truth is...we are not at all
casting the fly. Instead, we are casting the fly line. To many, a fly
line is just a necessary component to go fly fishing. To us at
Leland, we believe the fly line should be the focal point, as we use
it to deliver our fly, mend our drift and land our fish. You bet the
right fly line is important.
Over the years, we've sold them all.
You name a fly line brand and series and we've probably carried it at
some point. Most big brand fly lines entice your interest with
performance and technology, promising longer, higher-line speed
casts. If your sole focus is distance, maybe a performance fly line
is right for you. But, if you actually fish...you might be interested
in our offering. We call it the Leland Pliny fly line. We named it
after our favorite Sonoma beer...Pliny The Elder...it's that good.
Our goals, when designing this fly
line, were efficiency and control. Our efficient fly line profile
better transfers your casting energy down the fly line and into the
leader, allowing you to cast with far less power and still get the desired
results. Our unique profile is certainly part of the secret. The
other part is our supple fly line. It forms smoother, more-efficient
loops than a contemporary, hard-coated fly line. On the water, this
softer fly line is less affected by micro currents...meaning, less
mending for you.
It gets better. Our shorter weight
forward section makes casting even easier. You only need to control
and cast the head. Include the leader and your rod length, and
the resulting cast is always forty feet. As any seasoned trout angler
knows, forty feet is the magic trout mark for casting. No longer are
you required to hold some 47 feet of fly line head in the air before
you can efficiently shoot the line. With our Pliny fly line, you'll
have easy access to the running line for effortless distance, should
you need it.
Our olive green fly line head blends
well with any brush-lined trout stream, offering you added stealth
when fishing educated trout. We even worked hard to minimize our fly
lines two welded loops. No more clunky casts and you still get super
easy rigging, too.
While developing this fly line, we
learned a thing or two we didn't expect. Not only is the fly line
perfect for anyone just getting into fly fishing for trout, it's a master angler's line, too. We also learned that a truly efficient
line works for all angling techniques. Whether dry fly, nymph or
streamer fishing, we learned it's not necessary for a
technique-specific fly line profile. All you need is an efficiently
designed fly line that loves to transfer energy down the fly line. As
the mass of the fly or rig increases, all you need to do is increase
the line mass...don't change the profile of the line.
All of us at Leland have been fishing
our Pliny line for the past two seasons and that's now all we use
when trout fishing. We certainly believe in it, but you don't have to
take our word...try it yourself. We'll ship you an efficient
Pliny and you give it a try. If it doesn't make casting more
enjoyable, efficient, controlled and accurate...just send it back and
we'll give you a full refund. We promise, this fly line will change
your fly fishing experience.
