Jim Teeny Weight Forward Mini Tip

teeny_box_sink1.jpg Teeny W/F Mini Tip Line
When I first thought of the mini tip design I was thinking of trout fishing in lakes and streams, and/or fishing for sockeye and chum salmon in Alaska. This fly line works well in a large variety of waters on most types of fish. Steelhead, Salmon, Bass, and Bluegill are just a few. The design is a weight forward taper floating line with five feet of quick sinking tip. It is easy to cast with great visibility to the angler. Easy to pick up and cast again with great line control during your drift. The Mini Tip line is my personal favorite fly line for most subsurface fishing, except for when you need to get down quickly in heavy currents or deep waters. In rivers a leader length of 4 to 6 feet is usually the best in moving waters. If fish are suspended in slow deep pools a 9 to 12 foot leader is best, as it makes a more natural presentation of your fly to the fish without motion or shadow from your line. If you need a line to get your fly down with minimal line drag and excellent control the Mini Tip should be the line for you. Order the line that corresponds to the rod size you will be using it on.
