Product Code

Specifically designed to be one of the top fish-catching lines in the world for lake anglers, with ultra-slick performance.

Models Available: Hover 1.0ips and Clear 1.5ips

Sizes Available: WF5 - 8

The Premier Midge tip is a floating line with a 3ft, clear intermediate tip that sinks 1.5 inches per second or a grey hover option that sinks 1 inch per second.

This fly line is deadly effective on windy days, when fishing in shallow bays, close to lake shores or over the top of weed beds, and is perfect for fishing nymphs, emergers, and buzzers. Each line is built with a supple coldwater core, SlickCast coating, and welded loops on the front and back for fast rigging. A must-have line for lake anglers everywhere.
