|Ambush Triangle Taper Fly line: When I first read
about this line my thoughts were that it would be great for
tossing weighted flies, large streamers and intruders and
it does do this well. However, with the short 20' head,
spey casters soon realized that it would make a great
I took the Ambush line to the Yough river to toss some
large streamers in the hopes of luring some good sized
brown trout. Using a single handed rod, the casts easily

provided a nice slow enticing swing. I didn't land any nice
browns, but I had more fun just casting this line. The
Ambush Triangle Taper will also cast sinktips in the
As with all shooting tapers, you may have to modifly your
casting stroke with nice smooth movements, but you will

|If you plan to use an ambush line on a Switch rod, it is
recommended that you choose a line 3 sizes heavier
than what the rod is rated for Skagit casting. For
overhead casting you should go 2 sizes heavier. Line
sizes 4 - 6 will cast up to T-ll custom tip. Lines 7 and up
will cast T-14.

|Ambush Nuetrilizer Line - Slow sinking intermediate head
presents your fly just below the surface. I would also
recommend this for poppers and divers!

|Ambush Shooting Head - This innovative short 20 - 29' shooting head
loads quickly and easily. The line features loops on both ends for easy
attachment. Performs great with single hand switch, skagit, scandi,

|Ambush Short Line - Ambush Shorts are available in full
length floaters in 175-325 grains in 25 grain increments. The
shorts compliment the standard Ambush by adding shorter
heads for tighter fishing conditions. Thinner running lines allow
for less drag in the guides and better shooting ability. They also
allow smaller D loops for double and single spey.
