When Snowbee first introduced the line in 2015, Thistledown was something unique and new, quickly becoming their fastest selling fly line. There were a few early memory issues and technical challenges until they adapted fully to the new procedure of manufacturing using the fine monofilament core. From then on, the biggest problem has simply been to make enough of them to keep up with demand across the UK, the whole of Europe & elsewhere.

Technology has moved on again and, working with world leaders in braided line technology, Snowbee have now replaced the mono core with a superb new braided core version that we are calling the XS-Thistledown....


'Awesome', 'Sensational', 'Outstanding' are just a few of the descriptions that have been fed back by early users and top anglers worldwide who have been involved in testing this new version. Now with zero memory issues, a finer but stronger core and more supple than ever before, this line is set to exceed the performance of even the best selling original Thistledown. Due to improved core technology, it has a thicker outer coating, allowing it to float higher despite having the same diameter. It will last longer, but still has the same profile and performance befitting its name. It casts and delivers with the proverbial "Thistledown" delicacy and precision one would expect from such an elite and aptly named new fly line. Rated from #2-5wt for the single line, the new Thistledown Plus will perform outstandingly on any fly rod rated between AFTM #2 and #5, regardless of its length. Now there is also the single #5-#7wl. line that again achieves the same!!!
