Fly Fishing Glossary E's

Fly-Fishing can often be confusing to beginners to the sport because fly-fishermen talk and write in a strange language using words not always in standard use. To help take some of the confusion out of the terms bandied about by fly fishermen we have compiled this glossary.

feather floater fly line 3 weight

This is a wonderful product! They call it the "Feather Float Down" and that is exactly what is. No more spooking fish, an absolute dream to cast and very good value for this high quality line. I bought this with Brook and stream fishing in mind but used it on my local Stillwater for rainbows to try out and could not stop catching. Great time on a 7ft rod with this superior fly line pulling in a 4lb fighting Rainbow with ease.
