Phantom Tip - Bonefish
Weight Forward - Floating Line
The Bonefish taper gives the angler the perfect mix of a gentle stealth presentation paired with the aggressiveness to combat high wind conditions and deliver long accurate casts. With an aggressive front-head design but with a more elongated belly and gradual rear taper this line will still shoot line effortlessly but will allow for a more delicate landing on the water which is key when fishing shallow flats to spooky Bonefish.
This new Phantom Tip series uses our new semi-stiff low-stretch saltwater core. The minimal stretch allows for excellent sensitivity and powerful hook-sets while still allowing to anneal/straighten the line easily with a simple hand stretch. This added stiffness will also help retain the character of the line in extreme heat.
Our Phantom Tip series utilizes our new STS Phantom Tip coating system bringing the best of stealth, slickness, and visibility into one package. The 15 foot stealth tip (from front loop to mid belly) reduces the chances of lining/spooking fish when presenting the fly, and can also allow the angler to use a shorter leader in windy conditions. The remainder of the line, with its bright green color, gives great visibility for tracking the line on the water and while casting. With our game changing STS slickness formula uniformly built into the coating, the slick properties will never wear off, maintaining superb line-shooting ability while also improving durability and overall life of the line.
All Phantom Tip - Bonefish lines are weighted on the heavy side of the true AFFTA standards. You can see the weight ranges in the chart pictured here (weights are measured from the first 30 ft of the head). Many fly lines in today's market are vastly over-weighted, sometimes up to 3 sizes. At Monic, we understand that not every angler is using a fast action rod or wants an ultra-heavy fly line forced into their hands. That is why we want to leave the decision up to you. After all, nobody knows your rod and fishing style better than you do.
If you are using a medium-fast to fast action rod, you may want to consider upsizing a line or two. We always suggest to our customers, if there is a specific line you have enjoyed in the past and how it loaded your rod, take a minute to look up the weight designation for the first 30 ft and match that weight to the size of the Monic line you are interested in. If you would like help matching a given Monic line to your rod, reach out to us at any time. We will do our absolute best to get you fitted with the perfect line for your fishing scenario.
Great feel and smooth cast.
Love the flyline! I had 5 bonefish swim underneath the line in 8 inches of water without spooking. 2nd cast I hooked up and landed a 4 pound Bone in the Bahamas!
