Ambush Triangle Taper Fly line: When I first read about this
line my thoughts were that it would be great for tossing
weighted flies, large streamers and intruders and it does do
this well. However, with the short 20' head, spey casters soon
realized that it would make a great switch line.
I took the Ambush line to the Yough river to toss some large
streamers in the hopes of luring some good sized brown trout.
Using a single handed rod, the casts easily sailed to the far
bank and the charecteristics of the head provided a nice slow
enticing swing. I didn't land any nice browns, but I had more
fun just casting this line. The Ambush Triangle Taper will also
cast sinktips in the proper weight.
As with all shooting tapers, you may have to modifly your
casting stroke with nice smooth movements, but you will
quickly catch on.
Remember, you only need at most, 20ft of backcast room for

overhead casting you should go 2 sizes heavier. Line

will cast T-14.
