Big Mama is a perfect line for bulky and heavy flies. The profile is a reverse compound taper with a short front taper to cut through wind. It has a slick and supple coating which remains memory free even in cold conditions. The low stretch core helps you to feel the takes and set the hook and also transfers casting energy better than traditional cores. The ready-made loops make it easy to attach the leader and backing. For season 2017 the line is available in classes #8, #9 and #10.
MAMA OR DADDY?
Big Mama is our new all-around pike line and it is a proper tool when using big flies (even the rabbit size ones) - just like our proven Big Daddy fly line. The main criterion for a fisherman to choose between Big Mama and Bid Daddy is not the size or the weight of his/hers favourite fly, but the preference whether he/she likes short headed shooting head type line (Big Daddy) or traditional WF type line (Big Mama). Even though the head of Big Mama looks longer on paper, the majority of the head weight is situated on the front part so it can be used successfully also with big & heavy flies.
When we simplify things considerably, one could say that when you are fishing from a float tube you should give Big Daddy the first chance and when you are fishing from a boat your first option should be Big Mama. But as we all know, one likes daughter, another prefers mother and the third one loves both. So, get them both and go fishing. After a couple of trips you will know your own preference – Mama or Daddy. We don’t judge, we love them both…
