    Leland New Zealand (The Pliny) 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 might be interested 
    in our offering. We call it the Leland Pliny fly line. We named it 
    after our favorite Sonoma beer...Pliny The'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 for educated trout. We even worked hard to minimize our fly 
    line's 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 this 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.

    Almost too camo but like the line

    title above says it all. I sometimes find it hard to see even with a trained eye but I guess that's their point. I see why they make it in white. However, the overall action of this line is really nice. It makes it easy to feel the rod, especially on my back cast.

    Dear Leland

    I purchased the Diesel 5/6 weight reel over a year ago and it is still my favorite reel! I love the way it "sings" when I hook a trout! Also, you guys recommended the New Zealand fly too has become one of my all time favorite "tools" for fishing.

    Thanks a bunch,

    New England


    Beginner Caster

    Stopped by Leland Ranch the other day and the guys there had me cast this new line.

    All I can say is WOW! As a beginner I struggled with how much line to practice with was and also try to shoot line. This line has a olive drab front and red running line. It was effortless just to cast the green part and made it easy to shoot line.

    Needless to say I bough one and now it's my go to for practicing and fishing!



    Good all around line

    Just needed a new fly line. Too many choices for me these days. Spoke with Casey at Leland. Told him what I fish for and how I like to rig. He recommended this line and I trusted him. Turned out to be a great fly line. No problems at all.
