Easy-Mend Floating Switch Line

A longer head version of the original Orvis fly-fishing switch line. Designed to give anglers a longer head for mending and line control on the water. Great for nymphing with indicators or swinging streamers across big water. Quick transition to running line still allows line used as an integrated shooting head. Can be combined with PolyLeaders for added versatility. Lines are weighted to match perfectly with Helios™ and Access™ Switch rods. Pale chartreuse line with fl. orange back taper. WF 5-10. Overall head length is 43'. Total fly-fishing switch line length is 125'. Grain weights at 43': WF5 300 grains, WF6 340 grains, WF7 380 grains, WF8 420 grains, WF9 520 grains, WF10 580 grains. Made in USA.

"This line is great! The 10wt paired up perfect for my 8WT 10'6". I am able to cast so much farther, allowing me to cover more water, as a result, catching more fish. What more can I ask for?
Thanks Orvis!"

"The best line for a switch rod and Great Lakes steelhead, that I've yet tried. Fantastic nymphing line, and it will throw 10' poly leaders and fairly substantial streamers if swinging is your thing. Heads and tails above the Beulah Elixer scandi line."

Very Good valued fly line,
September 6, 2012

"Great fly line to match with my 11' 7wt switch rod. Very easy to mend while nymphing. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is that it doesn't have the wt. info printed on the line like your newer lines do. Glad you guys made that change on the new stuff--all in all, excellent product!! Thank you!!"
