All lines are designed to go everywhere from Arctic to Tropical whether chasing cold-water steelhead and winter trout or stalking a Grand Slam in the clear waters of the tropics. With Monic Fly Lines, you can be confident that our products will give you the best shot to reach your goal whether it’s more fish or bigger fish. Or both!

History

A lifetime ago, in the 80’s, avid angler Bob Goodale was fishing in Belize and having a heck of a time casting in the wind with a long leader. His frustration fueled his passion to design and develop a clear floating fly line that would enable him to use a short leader which would provide more stealth and not spook fish. After years of research & development, in 1994 he introduced the first All Weather Covert Clear line to the market and Monic was born.

For the past 24 years, Monic has been innovating and developing new ways to improve fly line performance and decrease fly line impact on the environment. No matter your location or weather, if you are in demanding technical situations or clear skies and bright sun, Monic fly lines continue to be the best on the market.

Our

Technology

Durability

The coatings on Monic Fly Lines do not contain the volatile chemicals that must be added to PVC in order to create a typical fly line. This shift in technology is important to maintain the durability of the line. Previously, these added chemicals would constantly leach out into the environment. For the same reason we stay away from PVC water bottles, food containers or baby toys, PVC emits poison. As those chemicals migrate out of the plastic, a void is created in the compound. Not only does this alter the compound from its initial, intended characteristics, but that void forces the compound to crack over time. This is where the circumferential cracks on a PVC fly line are born. Add dirt, oil, and other foreign debris to the cracks and performance degrades. Monic Fly Lines do not lose material over time, and therefore do not crack. This is important in the overall durability of the line and its performance longevity for the angler.

Temperature Sensitivity

Fly fishing is a year-round sport and takes place in a variety of locations and environmental situations. For years, fly lines have been marketed as cold water, arctic, tropical, still water, warm water, etc. This delineation of the product line causes complexity for both anglers and fly shops. Impact fly lines are suitable for all temperatures. A Monic Impact fly line will perform equally well in all temperatures, whether it is used for winter steelhead with snow on the riverbank or if it is being directed toward tailing permit from the bow of a hot skiff in the tropics. This saves the angler time, money, confusion, and space.

Float

The design and materials that make up Monic Fly Lines range from lighter than water compounds to low density hollow cores and coatings that float. The buoyancy of all Monic Fly Lines is unparalleled at assisting in line management and keeping the fly where it needs to be so you spend more time fishing and less time with your line in the air.

Eco-Friendly

Design

When PVC plastics were introduced, they were hailed as the “super plastic.” Strong, durable, and weather resistant. Plastics that would last forever. And they do. So why not use PVC based fly line? Unfortunately, PVC’s production, use, and disposal create more cancer-causing and toxic chemicals than any other plastic on earth. We can’t have this in our waters.

 

Monic fly lines do not require the use of any harmful chemicals. Every compound that comes together to make a Monic line is 100 percent recyclable.

And because we don’t use PVC, the coatings on Monic Fly Lines do not contain the volatile and harmful chemicals that must be added to PVC in order to create a typical fly line. Monic Fly Lines knows that there’s an indispensable and crucial connection between a healthy habitat and better fishing, so one of our founding principles is to create and deliver the best performing fly lines available that also help protect our waters for future generations of anglers.

Finding a universal Intermediate Clear fly line is a task taken by so many yet never realized or at least until recently. Having used Monic Clear Floating Fly Lines off the beaches of Vancouver Island chasing Pink, Coho and Chinook Salmon very successfully, we were asked to try the new Clear Intermediate line for the same and WOW! Brilliantly clear and smooth, amazing strike detection and a real pleasure to fish. Cudo’s to Monic for their Environmental concerns, delivering these great and durable lines.
