‘Countdown’ Fly Lines
of our snowbee fly lines come with free backing and braided loops!!
running line has also been extended by 20 feet over a normal Snowbee XS
to allow for the extra casting distances achievable. With the line
having no memory issues, ones time on the bank or boat is more
productively spent fishing and you don’t have to start your retrieve on
– XS-Plus Countdown 2
coloured in natural olive greens to avoid spooking fish but still
visible to see the depth of retrieve. At 2 inches per second sink rate,
this represents the slowest in the XS-Plus Countdown series it is
perfect for fishing nymphs or lures beneath the surface on river or
Stillwater and will account for many bonus fish ‘on the drop’ as the
flies sink slowly, whilst counting down to the desired fishing depth.
– XS-Plus Countdown 3
a sink rate of 3 ins/sec this has been designed for fishing nymphs in
moderate depths, especially when the wind is up a little or with a booby
on the point to provide a washing line style of fishing. When the fish
are feeding or holding 3-5ft below the surface, Countdown 3 can be ideal
for reaching that popular target depth within about 15 secs and then a
continuous moderate retrieve will help maintain the flies at the desired
fishing depth for much of the way back.
– XS-Plus Countdown 5
5 averages a sink rate of 5 inches per second, which is perfect for
fishing a team of sunk lures at moderate depth on a rough day, with a
good degree of control. Traditional lures and boobies can be combined
with mixed leader lengths to provide the ultimate presentation at
whatever depth required. Countdown 5 will quickly deliver ones flies to
required depth, from a boat for example, without losing valuable time
and distance, as the boat continues to drift quickly forward.
– XS-Plus Countdown 7
fastest sinking Snowbee line ever, at a density achieving an average
sink rate of 7 inches per second, this line will provide optimum
distance and depth in the roughest of weather conditions. Capable of
reaching the bottom in nearly 20 feet of water in around 30 seconds and
with a low stretch core for maximum sensitivity, this line is ideal for
lures or boobies in all weathers or simply fishing ones flies hard on
the bottom in no time at all.
