Snowbee XS Plus Thistledown Fly Line, two options now available, #2-#5 is designed for the river and light fishing on still waters and the Brand New #5 - #7 for heavier rods.
Thistledown Fly Line Features - Zero memory issues, a finer but stronger core and more supple than ever before, the New #5/7 fly line is set to exceed the performance of even the best-selling and original #2/5 Thistledown!! Both ends are pre-looped with welded micro-loops, to maintain the line’s outstanding performance, so it's ready to go, straight from the box.
The Snowbee XS Plus Thistledown Fly Line how it all works... it states #2-5wt there really is only one single line that can and does function amazingly on all weight rods, whether they be a #2, #3, #4 or #5! Now there is also the single #5-#7wt line that again achieves the same.
It comes down to simple physics – the optimum diameter and proﬁle creates hardly any drag when casting. That means the ‘load weight’ factor becomes less critical to casting performance and the nominated rod weight becomes less important in achieving the cast. The new and reﬁned components for these Snowbee XS Plus Thistledown Fly Lines, being Core, Primer and Nano-Tec coating, combine to give the thinnest, most supple, weight forward proﬁle possible. They still weigh very little but deliver incredible stealth and accuracy at the same time. The silky smooth ﬁnish and thin diameter means the fly line speed can be maintained throughout the casting action and delivers the ﬂ y precisely where required, with minimum effort. Even across a gale force wind this line has been used to great effect and will cut through almost any breeze with its drag coefﬁcient being so small.
Snowbee XS Plus Thistledown Fly Line was primarily designed for river and light ﬁshing on small still-waters but is now a regular companion on almost any application where an angler enjoys lightweight ﬁnesse, stealth and accuracy. For the heavier performance longer leader, heavier ﬂies set up, associated with stillwater ﬁshing, there is now the Thistledown² in the heavier #5-#7 option. Both the lines are two-tone in colour, Shamrock Olive head with Buckskin running line.

Simon Kidd, Snowbee Sales & Marketing Manager and fly fishing England international talks about the New Snowbee XS Plus Thistledown Fly Line... "I ﬁrst used a Snowbee XS line many years ago on the river Teign. It was like nothing I had used before, soft, supple, totally memory free and effortless to cast the ﬂ y wherever I needed it. I then discovered there was a whole range of nearly 50 XS lines of similar superb quality. Suddenly my whole ﬂy ﬁshing experience became transformed... now today that technology has moved on yet again. The new Thistledown and its derivatives are quite extraordinary, marking the introduction of a whole new era in Snowbee ﬂy line technology and performance”
