My original plan was to develop a one piece fly line with a sinking deep water express shooting head mated with a floating running line with our new “HPC” coating (high performance coating) that would be easy to cast and very strong. That it would be perfectly balanced and color coded so one could easily see when they could roll cast or pick the line up off the water at the optimum time for the easiest and best results. Because I live on the west coast, the lines were originally designed for fly fishing for salmon and steelhead on our west coast rivers and streams. Shortly after their introduction, it was apparent that many other fly anglers had their own ideas about other uses for the lines. In the salt for stripers, blue fish, halibut, bill fish, Tarpon and many others, all fell prey to the T - Series lines. Realistically, what the T - Series & Saltwater Series fly lines have done is open up new fisheries both fresh and saltwater. There is hardly a fish that we cannot go after and quite possibly land with a certain amount of luck.

The TS Series represents a longer version of the original Teeny T Series fly lines. The sinking section is 30 feet long with a 70 foot floating section with our new “HPC” coating (high performance coating), totaling 100 feet. The title of the line is Saltwater Series, but it works equally well in freshwater when distance is important. The reason I designed this line was for anglers who prefer to cast long distances of up to 100 feet. I have found this line to be very useful on many of our big wide rivers on the west coast where casting distance is important. What I like about this type of line is if you wish to fish close in, say 20 to 30 feet, you can easily do this. Simply roll cast some of the sinking line. Short leaders seem to work best with these lines. I usually run about 4 feet of leader off my fly line when I am fishing for Steelhead or Salmon. The best way to cast this type of line is to get the color change to your rod tip and roll cast your line to the surface and then immediately make a single false cast and then shoot it where you want it to go. My favorite size for Billfish is the TS-550 which is perfect for quick casting and excellent balance to turn over large flies. This line works equally well in both fresh and salt water.
