STRIPED BASS SINK BREAKDOWN

The right choice for targeting Striped Bass and other saltwater species down deep.

Our Cold Salt Striped Bass Sink line features a 28 ft. type 8 sinking head with a short 3 ft. front taper for turning over the largest saltwater patterns. The short 3 ft. back taper helps load this line quickly and makes it extremely shootable. Intermediate running line removes any hinges in the line and gives you a smooth transition into the depths.

Built on a braided nylon core, this line features our signature Cold Salt jacket material for staying supple and memory free in the coldest of conditions. Finished in black and ice blue, this line is stealthy yet traceable.

The Cold Salt Striped Bass Sink is perfect for throwing large flies from shore or from a boat.

The short front taper paired with the aggressive body effortlessly delivers these variety of patterns with minimal false casts. The short rear taper helps excel in quick loading and fast shooting. This line is built a line and a half size heavy to load faster action rods and give you maximum loading power in a shorter period of time.
