First Dart fly lines

First Dart fly lines

Received some fly lines to test out from a company called FirstDart Fishing Tackle, the only chinese manufacturer for fly lines.

The line manufacturer provided very little information about their products. They give the feeling of budget fly lines so we’ll have to cast them to see how they perform. According to Nick, they look similar to some other fly lines in the market. First impression is they may not be tropical line. If that is the case, there will be slightly less chance for us to fish them as the majority of our fishing is done in warmer waters. Will let you guys know how they fare as soon as I get a chance to cast them.

Anyone has got any experience with them?

Unfortunately things don’t always work out as planned and fishing was tough that day. Bruce managed one fish in the earlier part of the day while there was a few misses. [Read more...]
