Scientific Angler Fly Line Cleaner RinseRegular price $22.99
You think your floating line isn't floating as well as it used to? The reasons, and the fix are probably pretty simple. Lines float because they are lighter than water and, because they are hydrophobic, they repel water. For lines to float their best, both of these features need to be working. The density of your line won't change, it won't absorb water and become waterlogged and sink but if it gets dirty it won't repel the water well and it will float lower in the surface tension and may get pulled under now and then.
The key to good flotation is keeping your lines clean so the hydrophobic surface can work. Cleaning with soap and water on a cloth removes most of the dirtÂ but the new S.A. Fly Line Cleaner works even better. Properly cleaned, your lines will float better, cast better and last longer so certainly a good trade-off for a couple minutes of line maintenance.
Dressing with S.A. Fly Line Dressing will further improve flotation, casting and durability also. Clean and dress your lines every 2-3 outings, or anytime you think dirt is hindering their performance.
