Scientific Anglers Fly Lines: Sonar Series

 

Sonar Premium Sinking Fly Lines

The SA SONAR Series was designed by anglers for anglers. Built for exploring every inch of the water column, the SONAR Series features sinking heads, full sinking lines, and even custom-cut lines for getting down as deep as you need. Constructed with our AST slickness additive, SONAR sinking technology, SA•ID line identification system, and Welded Loops, the SONAR Series is a technologically advanced set of sinking lines, built for fish of all species.
Fresh or salt water, it doesn’t matter. We have a SONAR built for the fish you’re after.

The SONAR Titan Series features lines built on our popular Titan Taper, only instead of floating, all of these sink; from fishing just beneath the surface in a small stream to dredging blue holes in the ocean, nothing helps you throw large flies better than the SONAR Titans. Each of these lines are made two-line sizes heavy; however, they are designed to be used on rods with the designated line weight. We build them oversized to help turn over large flies and chuck big casts at even bigger fish.

Stillwater angling presents its own unique challenges and demands. Fishing just below the surface with chironomids, camouflaging full-sinking lines, and fishing the hang are all aspects of stillwater angling we’ve addressed with our SONAR Stillwater Series. Featuring our AST slickness additive, along with the Seamless Density and Clear Camo technologies, lines in our SONAR Stillwater family are designed to catch fish in lakes and reservoirs all over the world.

 

Sonar Titan Hover/Sink 2/Sink 4

Get this: we took one of our most popular tapers, the Titan, drenched it in various mixtures of tungsten powder, and created a triple-density sinking fly line that will absolutely change the way you fish streamers forever. This is a fully tapered sinking line, so it casts like a floater, but provides a straight-line sinking connection to your streamer. The days of chucking and ducking are finally over. Welcome to the triple-density revolution.

Sonar Titan Sink Tip

So you know where the fish are holding. You’ve done your research. But you just don’t know how deep they are. Luckily, the Sonar Titan Sink Tip fly line offers a variety of solutions for all of your depth-finding needs. Just below the surface? Try the Sink 3. Holding steady in the shadowy depths? Get the Sink 6. Experimentation is the name of the game, so maybe it makes sense to try them both. Built on our popular Titan profile to allow you to turn over even the biggest streamers while you’re searching for the biggest fish.

Sonar Titan Big Water Taper Max Sink

In designing our SONAR Big Water Taper series, we had one specific goal in mind: to create the world’s strongest fly line. Built on the industry’s first 100-lb. monofilament core, the Sonar Titan BWT Max Sink is built for the blue-water beasts of your dreams (or nightmares).

Sonar Sink 30 Clear

So part of the equation is getting flies in front of fish. The next part is not spooking them while doing so. Our Sonar Sink 30 Clear fly line offers the same casting benefits of the Sonar Sink 30 taper, but substitutes a 30' slow-sinking clear head. When stealth isn’t an option, the best choice is to go clear.

Sonar Saltwater Intermediate

It’s not very often you’ll need to fish topwater flies in the salt. That’s where an intermediate line comes in handy. The SONAR Saltwater Intermediate fly line features a slow-sinking clear head that cuts through the surface and provides an amazing amount of stealth for those wary fish cruising the flats. From redfish and bonefish to permit and tarpon, give yourself an edge that fish won’t be able to see.

Sonar Stillwater Hover

One day, long ago, in a kingdom far, far away, we dreamed up a line that would sink, but not sink too much, one that would simply hover beneath the surface. Fast forward thousands of years and the SONAR Stillwater Hover sinking fly line was born. Built with an extra-slow sink rate, the Hover is downright nasty when it comes to fishing streamers with a slow retrieve. It’s a legend, at least in our own minds.

Features:

Colour: Pale Green/Surf

Sonar Stillwater Clear Camo

How can something be clear and camouflaged? That’s easy. We took a mottled core, doused it with our new, supple clear coating, and we had the Sonar Stillwater Clear Camo. Designed for the unique demands of stillwater angling, the Clear Camo simply disappears beneath the surface, and features a slow, intermediate sink rate to tempt fish sitting just below the chop.

Features:

Sonar Stillwater Clear Emerger Tip

When fishing stillwaters, midges are important flies. Just as important is the element of stealth. The Sonar Stillwater Emerger Tip addresses both of these factors handily. Designed for tossing multiple flies and long leaders to wary fish cruising just beneath the surface, the Emerger Tip’s floating running line and short, clear intermediate tip allows anglers to fish with supreme line control and just enough stealth to get the job done.

Sonar Stillwater Seamless Density

The Sonar Stillwater Seamless Density lines are a unique departure from the traditional graduated density lines of years past. With a variety of double-density sinking rates and a smooth, seamless transition between each, the Sonar Stillwater Seamless Density lines provide straightline connections to subsurface flies, meaning you’re in control of the fly every second it’s in the water.

Features:

Colours: Pale Green/Dark Green (S1/S3), Dark Green/Charcoal (S3/S5) or Charcoal/Black (S5/S7 - shown)

Sonar Stillwater Parabolic Sink

Sure, the Sonar Stillwater Parabolic Sink sounds scientific, and that’s because it is. These lines sink in a U-shape through the water column, suspending flies just above the bottom and creating enticing action with each strip. Built with 10- and 20-foot textured hang markers, these lines are a stillwater angler’s dream and something many fish will never have seen before.

Features:

Colour: Dark Green/Charcoal/Dark Green

Sonar Booby Tip

Booby flies are particularly effective in stillwater fishing situations. However, they need unique setups to fish them properly. We created a 5-foot floating Booby Tip that attaches to the end of any sinking fly line with a loop-to-loop connection, providing enough flotation to suspend Booby flies just above the bottom, away from any snags, right where the fish will be looking for them.
