Whether drifting downstream for trout, hooking up on summer redfish, or even fighting peacock bass, the Native Fly Blanks come in specific weights to maximize your performance in every application.
The 3 and 4 weights meet the needs of any angler fighting small game or fishing in tight quarters. These weights feature moderate actions that increase hook ups and protect the tippet with a deeper flex that sustains a lift set. Great in lighter applications, the 3 and 4 weight fly blanks allow anglers to easily mend line and roll cast in tighter spaces.
The 5 weight adds a little more versatility by coming in either 8’6” or 9’0” lengths. The Native Series 5 weight fly blanks brings the shorter 8’6” option for tighter spaces where casting distance isn’t as important, while the longer 9’0” handles a variety of conditions without any extra weight on the blank or effort in casting.
Popular in light freshwater, both 5 weight fly blanks feature a progressive flex that works to keep the hook in the mouth of fish without any added fatigue to the angler.
The 5 weight comes in either 4 or 6 piece setups.
Mid-range weights, like 6, 7, and 8-weights, offer more length to improve casting the fly line, while also adding more line and lure support even against windy weather. Designed with fast actions, these weights use that fast tip to increase line speed and add more power when fighting fish.
Whether fishing medium to heavy freshwater or light to medium saltwater, the 6, 7, and 8 fly weights are versatile enough for a far superior performance.
The 8 weight is available in either 4 or 6 piece setups.
