3 Sinking Lines For Fly Fishing Patagonia
We fish a lot of sinking lines in Patagonia, Chile whether drifting from a boat and pounding the banks or working the bays and reed lines of a secret laguna, it is a great way to find some large Patagonian trout. Today we are going to show you three of our favorite sinking lines that we like to bring with us when we go out for a day on the water.
RIO INTOUCH 15' TYPE 6 SINK TIP LINE
This is one of our favorite fly lines from Rio fishing products that we really like to use while fishing from a boat and hammering the banks and log structure that is so awesome and fun to fish in Chile. This line is just perfect for presenting the fly quickly and into the strike zone while also not having to long of a belly in the front taper, which causes tons of hangups and lost flies to the downed logs and structure that lines the river banks. The shorter tip allows you to strip the fly over the logs by simply raising your rod tip and then dropping it back down allowing the fly to sink and then stripping it back to the boat.
Rio Density Compensated Sink Tip, 24 ft. 300 grains
We really like this line from Rio and we like to fish this line mostly on lakes and lagoons while fly fishing in Patagonia, Chile. It has a really nice long 24 foot belly that really gets down in the strike zone and keeps it there which is so critical in lake fishing. Keeping the fly in the strike zone is exactly what this line will do for you which equals more fish in the boat. It takes some practice to throw this line as the front 24 feet of the taper is a bit of a workout after a few hours of slinging streamers like a mad man.
Jim Teeney Series Teeney T-200
We really like the versatility of this line from Jim Teeney and is one of our most versatile sinking lines that we have in our bag of tricks. This line works very well for river or lake situations and has a very nice taper that is very easy to cast and is a hallmark design of the Teeney series of fly lines. We like the 200 grain series lines for their ease of casting and their versatility.
We hope you have learned some new tricks on how to increase your odds with these three sinking lines and hope that you can put a few fish in your net because of it. You can also follow us at our Social Media outlets on Facebook and Instagram for more information on fly fishing Patagonia, Chile.
