The needs of stillwater anglers can vary significantly from those on streams and rivers. For a line to be effective in the uniquely challenging world of stillwater fishing, some serious considerations need to be taken in to the design.
The Sixth Sense Intermediate line features Airflo’s classic Delta Taper design. With its long front taper, it will present flies delicately at any distance without overly disturbing the quiet, still water. Its longer overall length allows for fishing effectively at both long and medium distances The rear taper has been clearly marked for a visual cue about the best “haul zone” when making the big casts.
The Sixth Sense Intermediate is available in sizes 5wt to 9wt and features our Power Core technology for positive hooksets and minimal memory. Both slow intermediate (.5″ per second) and fast intermediate (1.5″ per second) versions are available to help you dial in the perfect depth to find the “feeding zone.”
Tip section does not feature a welded loop
Tip and front taper: The extra long front taper helps present flies at any distance with minimal disturbance to the water surface.
Belly: The moderate length belly section helps provide the widest optimal casting range.
Rear Taper: The color-marked rear taper is moderately long at 10′ to help carry long casts and keep them stable – minimizing surface crash
- Small to medium wet flies: 9′ – 15′ monofilament or Trout (or Salmon) PolyLeader in densities from intermediate to extra super fast sink + tippet
