Most sea trout fly fishermen have already heard of the well-known “Guideline Coastal” fly lines. Countless times, these extremely popular and highly approved lines have been the magical connection between fishermen and the fish of a lifetime. Now, the Scandinavian designers have combined their years of experience in building these lines with the most modern materials to present the new flagship model among coastal shooting heads: The Guideline Coastal Shooting Head 2.0!
This reissue of a real coastal classic offers completely optimized features for a truly outstanding performance. Its modern design is based on the extremely popular Guideline Coastal Evolve fly line. Therefore, it has an improved taper with more weight in the front. And it is rather compact due to a length of approximately 9,5 m. Thus, it provides great turnover at all times – even in windy conditions. In order to exploit its full casting potential, this head can be combined with a running line with good shooting properties. This will create a very powerful setup with an incredible performance that allows effective and effortless casting – even when facing strong onshore wind and fishing weighted flies. With this impressive casting power in mind, it is especially remarkable that this line still allows delicate casts and precise presentations. Furthermore, this design masterpiece is built on the approved “Direct Contact Core”, which enables you to feel the slightest take – even if the sea trout are just nipping! And speaking of shy fish: Its transparent front taper is a great advantage when fishing in clear water without waves.
In short: The powerful Guideline Coastal Shooting Head 2.0 is a real pleasure to cast and the perfect companion for unforgettable sea trout action – even in challenging conditions!
This shooting head is available in two different versions:
- Floating – the ideal choice for shallow areas, small waves and spooky fish!
- Slow Intermediate with a sink rate of approx. 1,25 cm / second – perfect for fishing deeper areas and stronger surf!
- Top of the line slow intermediate coastal shooting head – the ideal choice for targeting sea trout, sea bass or mullet!
