Sink tip fly lines are a type of fly fishing line that feature a floating line with a sinking section at the tip. This unique design offers several features and benefits that make them highly effective in certain fishing situations.

One of the main advantages of sink tip fly lines is their ability to help anglers effectively fish subsurface. The sinking tip allows the fly and leader to cut the water surface and fish subsurface quickly, enabling anglers to target fish that are holding subsurface or feeding near the waters surface. This makes sink tip lines particularly useful for fishing in rivers with fast currents or in lakes where fish are not taking flies from the surface.

Another benefit of sink tip fly lines is their ease of use -having most of the line float means the line can easily be lifted off the water and re-cast, changing the angle of the cast even with a full line out should be straight forward. Compare this to a fulling sinking line when once submerged, can be difficult to lift from the water until almost all the line is retrieved.

Sink tip fly lines also provide better fly control during a drift. The sinking section keeps the fly in the desired depth range for a more extended period, allowing anglers to present the fly in the strike zone and maintain a natural drift. This is crucial when fishing for fish species that prefer subsurface feeding or when imitating the movement of specific aquatic insects.

Another benefit of sink tip fly lines is their ability to minimise drag. The sinking tip helps the fly line cut through the water and reduces the amount of line on the surface, which can create drag and spook fish. By keeping the end of the line submerged, sink tip lines allow for a more natural presentation, increasing the chances of enticing strikes from wary fish.

Lastly, sink tip fly lines offer anglers the opportunity to explore different water layers and cover a broader range of fishing environments. Whether fishing near the bank or submerged structures, sink tip lines allow anglers to control depth effectively and fish in a variety of underwater habitats.

In summary, sink tip fly lines provide numerous features and benefits that make them valuable tools for fly fishing. From the ability to fish in the top 2-4ft and present flies naturally, to improved casting control and versatility, these lines open up a range of fishing opportunities and increase the chances of success in various fishing scenarios.
