Finally -- they're in! So many people have read and/or heard about these fantastic metal barred Korker's soles-- and we kept saying, "They're coming in the next shipment!" And so here they are.

SCIENTIFIC ANGLERS Sharkwave Anadro Fly Line
Now 35% Off!
Developed and manufactured at the Scientific Anglers facility in Midland, Michigan, the Sharkwave series of fly lines represents one of the most interesting and groundbreaking evolutions in the history of fly line technology.
The benefits of the textured lines were numerous: increased surface area allowed the lines to sit higher in the water, offering less drag, easier mending, less water spray, and easier pick-ups; the micro-textured surface trapped air to provide increases in both shootability and flotation—all while decreasing friction; and the microreplicated pattern increased the durability of the lines, allowing them to last up to twice as long.
The development of the Mastery Textured series took the high points of the Sharkskin technology and combined them with the easy feel of traditional, smooth fly lines, resulting in a textured line that performs like the Sharkskin, but feels smoother to the touch.
So SA took the best parts of the Sharkskin, combine it with the Mastery Textured series, and voila! Meet the SharkWave, the world’s first Triple-Textured fly line. Featuring Sharkskin texture on the tip section, Mastery Textured divots for the belly and running line, a smooth Tactile Reference Point at the AFTMA 30-foot mark, SA•ID line identification, AST dry slick technology, Improved Dry Tip technology, and Streamlined Loops. Fishing friction free.
