Monic Flylines 101 Flyline
Like any great product, Monic flylines were born out of a flyfisherman’s frustration with the product he was using at the time. In the 80’s, avid angler Bob Goodale was fishing in Belize and having a heck of a time casting in the wind with a long leader. His frustration fueled his passion to design and develop a clear floating fly line that would enable him to use a short leader which would provide more stealth and not spook fish. After years of research & development, in 1994 he introduced the first Covert Clear line to the market and Monic was born.
For nearly 30 years, Monic has been innovating and developing new ways to improve fly line performance and decrease fly line impact on the environment. No matter if your fishing high pressure locations that demand precise presentations, or under clear skies and bright sun, Monic fly lines continue to be the best on the market
You won’t find a better all-around trout fly line for a better price. The Monic 101 was designed to be the perfect all-around fly line for trout, a line that will do everything you need well and will last you through multiple seasons of fishing at a great price point. Whether you are just getting started fly-fishing or if you are a seasoned veteran, the Monic 101 will get the job done and help you catch trout in any environment you might find yourself in.
Taper- Our new All-Around taper was designed specifically with the river, stream, and creek angler in mind. The front taper will turn over small dries to medium sized streamers with ease. The extended rear taper provides excellent control while casting and allows the angler to easily pick-up and throw back without needing to strip in line. The medium length belly in combination with the long rear taper helps while roll-casting as well as with on-water mends from distance. We have also implemented a very slight taper into the belly portion of the head to more effectively load your rod and improve casting at close ranges.
Core- The 101 utilizes our supple and relaxed braided fiber core. The low to moderate stretch rating gives the angler some shock absorbing properties while using extra delicate tippet and the ability to relax or straighten the line with a light hand stretch, while still allowing for sensitivity and low effort hook-sets. The core alone, by nature, holds zero reel memory helping to create a fly line that remains relaxed from the heat of July to sub-freezing January temperatures
Coating- Our 101 coating was designed to perform at a high level in all four seasons. The advanced coating blend will remain supple in colder temperatures while avoiding tack or stickiness during the warmer summer months. The plastics involved are 100% naturally buoyant, creating a high-floating fly line that will NOT begin to sink over time.
Unlike many other fly lines that tend to lose their slickness due to surface treatments or chemicals leeching out of the plastic, our 101 coating utilizes our proprietary STS slickness technology that has been expertly formulated and uniformly mixed within the plastic blend. This results in an extremely low friction surface that will shoot through rod guides like a dream but will NOT dissipate or migrate out of the plastic during the life of the line. This means, with occasional cleaning, your line will cast the same seasons later as it did right out of the package.
