Headwaters Classic LX Silk Line
Our Classic LX Silk Lines are individually crafted by hand using the finest quality pure Chinese silk. The taper is built by braiding the lines.
Natural silk fly lines require a little more care, but the benefits are remarkable. The control and power gained allows for better distances and greater accuracy. The lines are narrower than modern plastic lines allowing for more delicate fly presentation. In addition, you will lift from the water surface quicker and smoother and they are less susceptible to air resistance in windy conditions. Finally, with proper care, silk lines will last longer.
One line, three different line types. With the use of Mulicin as a floatant, you will have a floating line. Leave the tip section ungreased for a sinking tip. Or wipe the line clean of Mucilin for a full sinking line.
This Double Taper line comes with care instructions and a tin of Mucilin.
