New Additions to the Amplitude Line Series
Scientific Anglers Amplitude fly lines are said to be the slickest fly lines in the world thanks to their special AST Plus additive and textured surface.
Amplitude Trout: Made especially for medium to long distance trout fishing with smaller flies, this line is built on a braided multifilament core and has a new taper to help with soft presentations. Each line is 90' long with welded loops and comes in WF3F–WF7F sizes. Color: Celestial blue running line/rear taper matched with a bamboo head/blue heron front taper. Price: $129.95.
Amplitude Anadro: Made for use in cool to mild climates, these lines are built upon braided multifilament cores and feature long rear tapers for longer distance and line control. Also, each Anadro line is overweighted by 1.5 sizes to better deliver bulky rigs and flies. Includes welded loops. 100' long; sizes WF4F–WF9F. Color: turtle grass running line/willow head/short green front taper. Price: $129.95.
Amplitude Bonefish: Designed for tropical climates, Amplitude Bonefish has a medium head length and new taper for improved presentations. As an added bonus, the very end of each line is colored black so you'll easily be able to identify the last portion of fly line during blazing long runs. 100' long; sizes WF5F–WF9F. Includes welded loops. Color: Surf running line/ivory head. Price: $129.95.
Amplitude Tarpon: Built on a strong core for hardcore tarpon fishing, these tropical lines have short heads to load fast and a stealthy color scheme. Like the Bonefish line, these have a 10-foot black "sighter" portion at the end of the fly line. Welded loops included. 100' long; sizes WF10F to WF12F. Color: Sand running line/surf head. Price: $129.95.
Big Water Taper: Need STRENGTH? The tropical Big Water Taper has a powerful 100-pound core and is built one size heavier to toss a big bug a long distance. Like the Bonefish and Tarpon lines, these feature the black "sighter" portion. Although these lines do not have welded loops, we're told they will include braided material for splicing your own loops. 105' long; sizes WF10F to WF12F. Color: Surf running line/sand head. Price: $129.95.
New Additions to the Mastery Series
