TAGS:

DRENNAN’S classic Float Fish line has just got better – it’s now as much as 8 oz stronger per breaking strain, using a reliable knot like a five turn grinner.

What else can we tell you about it? It’s a reel line that’s perfect for float fishing, not super limp where it might tangle. It’s designed to give you perfect float control and line pick-up.

It’ll float straight after casting if left unchecked but flick the rod tip and it’ll sink, just under the surface where you might want it, still offering good line pick-up.

It’ll handle pinched-on shot too, as it’s got pretty good abrasion resistance. Drennan know how to make a good line, they perfected the art years ago.

Available in olive green, you’ll find it in diameters from 2.6 lb (0.14 mm) up to a 6 lb, (0.22 mm) on 100 m spools.
