Gehrke’s XINK® is now 27 years old.
It may well be the most revolutionary
invention in Fly-Fishing since the discovery of “the hook.” This product
will eliminate the majority of the lead used in nymphs and wet fly
patterns throughout the world if only everyone started using it.
Gehrke’s XINK® is the only patented Fly Sink in the world. All other
products are plagiarized from other industrial sources including the use
of common soap. Gehrke’s XINK® is amazing because it is wetter than
water without washing off, which was, until invented by George Gehrke, a
Yes, XINK® is unique.
Gehrke’s XINK® is simple to use. Before
one gets their streamer or wet fly “wet”, simply dress it with a very
little amount Gehrke’s XINK®. That wet fly is then condemned to sink
Why XINK®? What are the advantages,
really? Consider the following. A lead-wrapped nymph will:
1. Go slower than the river current
passing by. It is dragging because the nymph's specific gravity is
grossly separated from the density of water.
2. A nymph dressed with just Gehrke’s
XINK® will sink just as fast, if not often faster than a nymph with lead
wraps in it.
3. The nymph that is lightly dressed with
just XINK® will tumble along in a current more naturally than a
lead-weighted one. Often, our customers catch 3 fish for every one
compared to the old method. Lead weighted flies also tend to ride up
side down and unnaturally.
Gehrke’s XINK® will also sink tippets and
leaders except the super hard/slick brands. XINK® works great with
Maxima hand-tied leaders and tippets including other brands. XINK® also
is marvelous in increasing the sinking rates of sinking tip and full
length SINKING fly lines. In fact, it's almost a miracle on its ability
for a fly fisherman to go deep, and fast! Shortened leaders, which
contain 18 inches each of butt, taper, and tippet lengths, allow close,
controlled tracking with increased fish strikes throughout the day. The
product the pros use.
As with all Gehrke Products, Gehrke’s
XINK® is fully guaranteed to satisfy.
