The name suggests it already: The Fario CDC from Guideline is designed for the delicate presentation of fine dry flies (and nymphs). This floating line is a logical extension of the popular Fario series, which is very popular with Trout and Grayling fly fishers.
Quiet, sensitive and with laser-sharp loops, this line is a favourite among the Guideline team members - and us. An optimal choice for fishing with light, sensitive tackle and when presenting dry flies and nymphs to shy fish on clear waters. What is immediately noticeable is the thin diameter of this WF line, which makes it cut through the wind much better and land more gently on the water. Thanks to a mid-length head and an optimised taper for the use of long, thin leaders, you are able to present very accurately and precisely over all distances with this line. As the front taper is rather short, but has a balanced distribution of mass, this light line allows you to turn over longer leaders even more effectively. The relatively long belly in combination with an extended rear taper ensures a stable loop and allows you to make corrections to your cast more easily in the air. Because the line stays slightly higher in the air until the end of the cast than a line with more weight concentration in the back of the belly, you have the opportunity to optimise your presentation right up to the last stop point. Maintaining height when unrolling the loop is also beneficial when you need to set the back cast high over obstacles or when you have to kneel down to avoid being noticed by the fish.
The extremely smooth coating of the Guideline Fario CDC has a relatively high density to keep diameter and wind resistance low. Nevertheless, this floating line drifts very high on the water surface and allows an easy pick up. The Guideline CDC WF is built on a braided multifilament core with a strength of 12 lbs and has a very subtle and delicate colour in the head area. The running line has a slightly "off-white" colour that provides enough contrast so you always know where the transition is between the two sections. There are small factory-made loops at each end, making it easy to loop in a leader quickly. The fly line box and spool are both environmentally friendly and compostable. This is another nice feature of this interesting fly line!
In short: The Guideline Fario CDC is an optimal choice for those who are after a high quality floating line with a medium length taper for fine presentations. We really like the taper and it makes forming tight, stable loops a breeze. Over all casting distances the Fario CDC offers full control and is incredible fun with both dry flies and nymphs!
