Monic Fly Fishing

ICE-WF4F

Monic Icicle WF Cold Floating Fly Line Icicle coating was designed to perform at a high level in all four seasons. The advanced coating blend will remain supple in colder temperatures while avoiding tack or stickiness during the warmer summer months or in tropical environments. The plastics involved are 100% naturally buoyant, creating a high-floating fly line that will NOT begin to sink over time.

Unlike many other fly lines that tend to lose their slickness due to surface treatments or chemicals leeching out of the plastic, Monic's Icicle coating utilizes their proprietary STS slickness technology that has been expertly formulated and uniformly mixed within the plastic blend. This results in an extremely low friction surface that will shoot through rod guides like a dream but will NOT dissipate or migrate out of the plastic during the life of the line. This means, with occasional cleaning, your line will cast the same seasons later as it did right out of the package, even if fished in hard saltwater environments.

As with all Monic Fly Lines, the Icicle boasts superb durability. The non-PVC coating will NOT leech chemicals, absorb water, or begin to break down merely from regular use. You should expect 2-3 times the lifespan compared to a traditional PVC based fly line.

 Monic Icicle Floating Fly Line Line Profile

 

All Icicle Javelin Taper lines are a half size above the AFFTA standards. You can see the weight ranges in the chart pictured below (weights are measured from the first 30 ft of the head). All of our lines manufactured here at Monic are constructed at or just above the AFFTA standards. Many fly lines in today's market are vastly over-weighted, sometimes up to 3 sizes. At Monic, we understand that not every angler is using a fast-action rod or wants an ultra-heavy fly line forced into their hands. That is why we want to leave the decision up to you. After all, nobody knows your rod and fishing style better than you do.  If you are using a medium-fast to fast-action rod, you may want to consider upsizing a line or two
