When you’re beating up the banks with flies with the mass of a small to mid-sized rodent, a fly line with some serious horsepower is required. To get it down and fishing immediately requires an even bigger list of attributes not often found in standard lines.
With the big fly expertise of Kelly Galloup, the Streamer Max Shovelhead was designed with a double-weight forward design to make it punch at a higher weight class. With the added mass in the front tip section of the line, it will turn over the flies that usually take a rod and line 2 to 3 sizes up. Equally important: he super fast sink material gets even the most bulky streamers down and “in the zone” in the first couple strips, so you don’t miss those bank-hugging hawgz.
