- Float (Fl. yellow/sand)
- Float/S1.5 (Fl. yellow/blue)
- Float/S3 (Fl. yellow/green)
Float is the perfect choice for night fishing or fishing in low salinity. Our floating shooting heads has a neutral tip. These can be fished as a floating tip or a hover tip. It all depends on your leader and tippet. Fishing this with a fluorocarbon leader, you'll get a hover tip effect. With a nylon leader and tippet, this will work great as a floating line.
Float/S1.5 (Intermediate) is the perfect choice for getting your fly down quick, but not too deep. Our slow intermediate line has a sinking rate of 1.5 inch per second (3.75 cm/s) for 80% of the head - 20% butt section is floating. This means you'll be able to track your line further out on distance and at the same time be fishing your fly in the perfect depth of water. This line is very versatile and be used in many situations.
Float/S3 (Fast intermediate) is good choice for the ones who likes fast stripping or fishing rough weather with big waves. This shooting head dives through the waves and gives you the control and connection with your fly at all times when needed. Our intermediate line has a sinking rate of 3.0 inch per second (7.5 cm/s) for 80% of the head - 20% butt section is floating.
"Enjoying the new advance shooting head from Searun Fly Fish, it sure does live up to my expectations, I must say it casts and present the fly like a Dream"
"I have been testing the new Searun Advance shooting head series and I must say that I am quite impressed. I was sceptical at first since I have struggled to find a shooting head that had the perfect taper to cast a variety of fly sizes. Typically shooting heads for seatrout fishing are designed to cast big flies or a two fly setup resulting in a powerful turnover, which is not ideal for presenting smaller flies. The Advance series has a well designed back taper that smoothly transfers the energy into a short front taper. This means that these heads are very stable in the air and can present a Gammarus fly delicately but at the same time chuck a big shrimp fly into the wind. Other advantages with this taper are easy distance and great turnover when casting into a headwind. The Searun Flyfish team did an astonishing job with these heads!"

Når jeg fisker havørreder på kysten, er der nogle afgørende ting jeg kigger på når det kommer til de liner jeg bruger. Først og fremmest så skal det være let kastet, også i vind der ikke lige passer. Fordi jeg forsøger at fiske der hvor jeg formoder fiskene er og ikke hvor jeg har de bedste kasteforhold. Lige netop det oplever jeg med linere her. Det er super nemt at vende forfanget over, altså få det til at strække sig, så jeg fisker så effektivt så muligt, og har kontakt til fluen med det samme.
Jeg fisker med alle 3 densiteter alt efter plads og forhold, og ingen af dem skuffer.
Det første jeg har lagt mærke til efter at have fisket med dem i nogle uger er at mængden af vindknuder er gået ned, også i dårlige kasteforhold.
Det er efter min mening et af de absolut bedste skydehoveder jeg har prøvet til dato. Så de største anbefalinger herfra.
