HYDROFLOAT is a Spectra based line with a thermal fused coating. Although the line can be used in many applications and works well on both spinning and bait casting reels, the specialty technique it was designed for was float fishing for both salmon and steelhead. The fused coating of HYDROFLOAT makes this line more buoyant than traditional Spectra lines, allowing the angler to have a drag free drift by always being able to see and manage the line on the surface. Unlike most Spectra lines that are very limp and suffer the dreaded "tip wrap" HYDROFLOAT has more body which helps eliminate this problem. When making long drifts, anglers will appreciate the fact that HYDROFLOAT has virtually no stretch, allowing you to have a positive hook set on extended drifts. Another added benefit is the high strength to diameter ratio of HYDROFLOAT.
