NEW! SONAR STILLWATER CLEAR CAMO

NEW! SONAR STILLWATER CLEAR CAMO


How can something be clear and camouflaged? That’s easy. We took a mottled core, doused it with our new, supple clear coating, and we had the SONAR Stillwater Clear Camo. Designed for the unique demands of stillwater angling, the Clear Camo simply disappears beneath the surface, and features a slow, intermediate sink rate to tempt fish sitting just below the chop.

  • Designed specifically for the demands of stillwater anglers
  • Based on popular MPX taper

When fishing stillwaters, midges are important flies. Just as important is the element of stealth. The SONAR Stillwater Emerger Tip addresses both of these factors handily.

Designed for tossing multiple flies and long leaders to wary fish cruising just beneath the surface, the Emerger Tip’s floating running line and short, clear intermediate tip allows anglers to fish with supreme line control and just enough stealth to get the job done.

NEW! SONAR SEAMLESS DENSITY

NEW! SONAR SEAMLESS DENSITY


The SONAR Stillwater Seamless Density lines are a unique departure from the traditional graduated density lines of years past. With a variety of double-density sinking rates and a smooth, seamless transition between each, the SONAR Stillwater Seamless Density lines provide straightline connections to subsurface flies, meaning you’re in control of the fly every second it’s in the water.

  • Sink 3/Sink 5: For searching the middle of the water column, with a Sink 3 running line and a Sink 5 (5.0 ips) head

NEW! SONAR PARABOLIC SINK

NEW! SONAR PARABOLIC SINK


Sure, the SONAR Stillwater Parabolic Sink sounds scientific, and that’s because it is. These lines sink in a U-shape through the water column, suspending flies just below the bottom and creating enticing action with each strip. Built with 10- and 20-foot textured hang markers, these lines are a stillwater angler’s dream and something many fish will never have seen before.

  • Based on popular MPX taper
  • Overweighted by two line weights for multiple flies and long leaders

NEW! BOOBY TIP

NEW! BOOBY TIP


Booby flies are particularly effective in stillwater fishing situations. However, they need unique setups to fish them properly. We created a 5-foot floating Booby Tip that attaches to the end of any sinking fly line with a loop-to-loop connection, providing enough flotation to suspend Booby flies just above the bottom, away from any snags, right where the fish will be looking for them.

  • 5’ floating tip designed to be used with sinking lines to keep leaders and flies suspended off the bottom, away from debris or weeds
  • Looped on both ends for easy rigging
  • Especially effective with Booby-style flies
  • SA BOOBY TIP 5 FT 25 GR F
SONAR TITAN TRIPLE DENSITY LINES

SONAR TITAN TRIPLE DENSITY LINES


Get this: we took one of our most popular tapers, the Titan, drenched it in various mixtures of tungsten powder, and created a triple-density sinking fly line that will absolutely change the way you fish streamers forever. This is a fully tapered sinking line, so it casts like a floater, but provides a straight-line sinking connection to your streamer. The days of chucking and ducking are finally over. Welcome to the triple-density revolution.

Available in 3 sink rates:  Hover/Sink 2/Sink 4, INT/SINK 3/SINK 5 and SINK 3/SINK 5/SINK 7
