Monic Phantom Tip-Permit Flylines
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
Taper- This taper has been designed specifically for the Permit enthusiast, offering all the needs of a perfect line for targeting one of the spookiest species on the planet. By using a very gradual front head design that steps up into a long 20ft belly section, this allows the angler to make long casts with extreme accuracy and provide the most delicate of presentations. While the thicker belly will help turn your line over in the wind and cast those heavier crab patterns with ease.
Core- This new Phantom Tip series uses our new semi-stiff low-stretch saltwater core. The minimal stretch allows for excellent sensitivity and powerful hook-sets while still allowing to anneal/straighten the line easily with a simple hand stretch. This added stiffness will also help retain the character of the line in extreme heat.
Coating- Our Phantom Tip series coating provides the angler with the ultimate stealth presentation fly line. The Phantom Tip version provides the best of both worlds, with a 15 foot clear stealth tip, while the remainder of the line is a bright green color making it easier to track the line in the air and on top of the water to give the angler a reference point for their fly. Most fish species, due to how their bodies are constructed as well as their feeding patterns, generally focus their eyes forward and up toward the surface of the water. This is why many fish can spook or become hesitant to feed if they can see thick bright fly lines casting overhead or lying across the top of the water. With the Phantom Tip this is not an issue! This naturally buoyant coating has been expertly formulated for outstanding clarity while minimizing shine from sunlight to create a fly line that is nearly invisible on the waters surface. Its extremely smooth texture-free surface produces very little friction between the line and rod guides allowing you to shoot line with ease whether its cold or warm. The toughness of the Phantom Tip coating produces a more durable, longer lasting fly line compared to most conventional PVC constructed fly lines. Its high abrasion resistance helps these lines hold up in some of the most brutal fishing conditions where rough coral, sharp rocks, and heavy surf can break down other lines in just a few outings. This allows the Phantom Tips to be taken from freshwater to the grueling salt without having to worry about cracks, dry rot, and delamination.
