Fly Fishing - Press Release

Fly Fishing - ST. PAUL, Minn. — Continuing on the international success of its Spey XLT fly fishing lines, the development staff at 3M Scientific Anglers addresses anglers who prefer shorter and mid-length head lines with new Mastery Series spey lines.

The original Mastery Series mid-length spey lines have been redesigned with features for experienced spey casters. "The 65- to 75-foot heads on these lines enhance long-distance mending and roll casting, and eliminates the need to strip and shoot line," said Bruce Richard, fly fishing line product engineer for Scientific Anglers. "Along with the extended head, a redesigned compound front taper provides the long-distance line control needed when fishing wide-open rivers."

At a total length of 130-feet, the weight forward Mastery fly fishing Series Standard (mid-length) spey lines are available in weights to match 7- through 13-weight rods. The yellow running line transitions into a mist green-color head section.

With the interest in spey casting growing, Scientific Anglers also offers the Mastery Series Short Head spey lines for anglers who prefer to carry less and shoot more fly fishing line. "They'll easily handle larger flies and allow for easier turnover for longer casts with less effort," Richards said. "The compact short head design is very versatile and is what many anglers prefer. The running line is the optimal size to allow the line to shoot and pull easily but still handle well and remain durable."

Offered with a yellow running line and a mist green head, the weight forward Mastery Series fly fishing Short Head spy lines are 120-feet in length, and come in weights to match 7- through 12-weight rods.

Both the short head and mid-length Mastery Series fly fishing spey lines are formulated with patented Advanced Shooting Technology (AST) that will keep them supple even in cool steelhead waters. "Unlike other slickness additives and surface treatments, AST is integrated into the coating and is not a fluid that can leach out or wear off, remaining permanently slick," notes Scientific Anglers' Del Kauss, who along with Richards is credited with the 3M patent on AST. "Because AST fly fishing lines do not have an oily kind of silicone slickness, they don't attract dirt and algae that robs a line of its floatation and shootability. They stay cleaner, float high and shoot farther for more on-the-water performance."

Scientific Anglers also offers the Mastery Series Spey XLT fly fishing lines for the most advanced spey casters. XLT spey lines again were used by the winner - Scott Mackenzie - and 4 of the top 6 places - at the acclaimed 2003 Musto International Open Spey Casting Championship held during the CLA Game Fair at Harewood House, England.
