Beulah Tonic Fly Line is redefining Skagit casting in terms of ease, control and efficiency for today's Switch and Spey rods. Compact and powerful, our new Tonic is the big brother to our Elixir line series. Engineered for control by placing the majority of the lines mass where it best suits the rod for casting. A condensed front taper ending with a large tip diameter positively transfers energy turning over stubborn long/heavy sink tips and large/heavy flies. Beulah Tonic fly lines are designed to match each of our Switch and Spey rods. With nine line sizes to choose from, these will be an excellent performance match for fall and winter sink tip fishing situations.
Beulah Tonic fly lines are designed to be just over 2 times rod length and allow for sink tips in a wide full range of lengths and grain weights along with moderate to large and heavy flies to be presented with ease and grace. These lines are generally designed to cast with sustained anchor techniques including the Snap T or C and Double Spey. With the right touch, splash and go casts like Single Speys and Snake Rolls are not at all out of the question.
How is Beulah Tonic different from most other Skagit style lines? Many Skagit style lines are designed with the majority of the profile as large diameter with out much taper to move the mass of sink tips and large/heavy flies. Crude, effective, but,.....not pretty.Beulahs new Tonic can be dissected into four areas of line profile to improve casting, control and line flight: Short steep taper that connects to your running line allows for the line to quickly collapse into bullet shaped tight loops. The rear taper then melds into the belly or body of the line which carries the majority of the lines weight (in grains) close to your rod tip allowing for instant load, and the ability to work tight casting spaces. From there, the lines feature a condensed continuous taper to a large diameter tip which connects to and handles all of your sink tip and large or heavy fly needs.
Beulah Tonic lines are matched to each of our Switch and Spey models starting with the 5/6 Switch giving you a total of nine different options to choose from. Five grain matched lines covering each Beulah Switch rod will be a great match for all rods 110 and shorter. Four grain matched lines for each Beulah Spey.
