Leland New Zealand (The Pliny) Trout Fly Line, 4wt The unique way we deliver our lure (the fly) is the defining attribute of the sport of fly fishing. Although we call this fly casting, the truth is…we are not at all casting the fly. Instead, we are casting the fly line. To many, a fly line is just a necessary component to go fly fishing. To us at Leland, we believe the fly line should be the focal point, as we use it to deliver our fly, mend our drift and land our fish. You bet the right fly line is important. Over the years, we’ve sold them all. You name a fly line brand and series and we’ve probably carried it at some point. Most big brand fly lines entice your interest with performance and technology, promising longer, higher-line speed casts. If your sole focus is distance, maybe a performance fly line is right for you. But, if you actually fish…you might be interested in our offering. We call it the Leland Pliny fly line. We named it after our favorite Sonoma beer…Pliny The Elder…it’s that good. Our goals, when designing this fly line, were efficiency and control. Our efficient fly line profile better transfers your casting energy down the fly line and into the leader, allowing you to cast with far less power and still get the desired results. Our unique profile is certainly part of the secret. The other part is our supple fly line. It forms smoother, more-efficient loops than a contemporary, hard-coated fly line. On the water, this softer fly line is less affected by micro currents…meaning, less mending for you.
