Drifting Wyoming's North Platte River, I was filled with anticipation as I made my first cast. With a slight hiss, the Scientific Anglers Sharkskin Line shot through the guides of my rod like a rocket and I knew instantly it was a winner.
Simple yet revolutionary, this line utilizes a micro-replicated surface (much like a golf ball) to decrease the surface area that actually contacts rod guides. The result is reduced drag and increased shootability, line speed and casting distance.
That same technology increases total surface area, allowing the line to float high and shed water quickly, promoting easy roll casts and line pickup.
The unique surface disperses light for stealthy drifts, especially helpful in clear water and when fishing heavily pressured waters. And its patented AST coating delivers superior strength and durability.
This line does make a subtle hissing sound as it slides through the guides, but it isn't bothersome.
Throughout the day, this line fished superbly. I was able to make accurate casts, manage the line with ease and land several fish.
