Scientific Anglers Sonar Titan Sink Tip

Scientific Anglers Sonar Titan Sink Tip

If you’ve got a good stick on the oars, you don’t need to cast far when you’re pounding the banks with streamers. Hit the target, strip, strip strip, strip, pick up the line, and cast again. When the water is high, and the trout are holding right along the bank, your oarsman should keep you just 40 feet from the bank. The Sonar Titan Sink Tip is two line sizes heavier (the 5-weight is actually a 7) so it loads quickly and delivers large flies and tandem rigs with authority. When wading, the running line floats so it doesn’t get tangled around your feet. The length of the sink portion is between 8 and 16 feet, depending on line weight, and you can choose from three different densities: intermediate, sink 3, or sink 6. Our tester used the Titan Sink Tip to swim Egg-sucking Leeches and flesh flies for rainbows in Alaska, and said the short, powerful taper also helps turn over even bigger flies for smallmouths, muskies, and pike. $90 | scientificanglers.com
