The Mastery Short Belly Taper, or SBT, is just that: a short-bellied fly line with an extended handling section. That means more mass is distributed to the front of the line, which assists in turning over weighted flies and performing roll casts. Excellent for single-handed Spey casts as well, the SBT isn’t your traditional weight-forward fly line.
Short head design with handling line delivers flies at short-to-medium range with extended line control. Turns over weighted nymphs and streamers, yet offers light presentations when used with long leaders. Camo non-spooking tip, bright colored belly for easier handling and line control. Well suited for single-handed Spey castsBraided multifilament core
This makes a great line for people setting up a smaller spey or switch rod. The 8wt comes in at 240gr. and is a good match for the Douglas Outdoors DXF 4wt switch
