If you’re looking for a fly line system that offers excellent water coverage and at the same time versatility in depth control for various fishing situations, you should seriously consider investing in a shooting head system. This is an extremely adaptable system that offers an interchangeable line solution covering the broadest range of water heights and weather conditions. Over the years shooting heads have enjoyed wide spread popularity on rivers throughout Scandinavia and are becoming increasingly popular with UK Salmon anglers. Armed with one reel loaded with a running line and a selection of heads of various densities, Salmon anglers can fish effectively from the highest to the lowest of river conditions. With the head supplying the casting weight and the thin running line reducing friction as the line is cast out through the rod rings, these lines can also be cast huge distances for minimal effort, making it easy for casters of all abilities to increase water coverage.

The shooting head taper’s are calculated to offer optimum power transfer as the fly line extends during the casting cycle, with the floating/intermediate offering additional depth control in cold water conditions. Regardless of which head is used, the interchangeable tips allow for complete flexibility in fly presentation by quickly changing tip density depending on the fishing situation. At the centre of the head system is Airflo’s famous Power Core braid. With only 6% stretch, this braided core technology allows for improved casting control and line stability in flight. The Power Core braid also enhances sensitivity as the fly swings through the pool. This allows for early detection of the take and ultimately, better hook ups and more chance of a landed fish.
