Tripple Dencity shooting heads.

Many anglers have asked me if I could write an article about the new Triple Dencity shoot clumps from Guideline, these came on the market last year. Common to all these approaches was that they wanted to hear about my experiences after a season's fishing with these lines.

Therefore, in this article I write about my experiences with these lines. I had tested most of the variations in the summer before and had a very good idea of the lines in relation to the casting. But in relation to the fishery and what distinguishes them from Double Dencity lines, you need a few hours in the river to truly experience the difference.

I like these lines very well both in terms of casting and the actual fishing. They are simply incredible, if you have not tried them yet, I recommend you to do so.

In relation to fishing, the Triple Density lines are moving thru the water in a total different way than the Double Density lines, hereinafter called. (DD = Double Dencity. TD = Trippel Dencity).
Just so it is said at once; DD lines go faster / further down the river than the TD. But it is not always an advantage, it will in many situations be easily attached and stuck to the bottom with a DD line compared to a TD. The first salmon I took on a TD line last year was in s2-s4-S6 line. In this pool, I had fished for many years and actually had a problem that I went to the bottom here with the DD lines in s2/s3 or s3/s4 The reason for this is that the salmon is in a deep gutter on the outside of a shallow and it was often easy to hook up the line fixed at the edge of this shallow depth down to the gutter. Often I fastened to the ground with DD s3/s4, but so was DD s2/s3 too easy compared to how deep the fish were. This day the water levels indicated that I should use a DD s3/s4, but chose now of course a TD line. I first tried a TD s1-s3-s5. This went fine without fastening in the bottom, but I had a feeling that I could try this pool with the TD s2-s4-S6 as well. and I was pretty excited if I would hook up in the bottom of the first session. But it went just fine and in the second session with the same line the salmon got hooked, and I could land the first salmon of this season.

Tripple Dencity = bent rod and screaming reel.

The reason this happens is precisely because the line is built on three different densities. On the TD lines, there is a lighter density at the back of the line that works better with the flat flow, therefore, the line goes a little faster through the current than a DD line. DD lines have a much heavier density at the back, so they sink deeper and slows up the speed to make it easier to fasten in the bottom. You can say that the DD lines are "hanging" in the water longer than the TD. TD lines are smoother in the 3 layers of water that is from top to bottom in the river, and therefore the line goes with a higher speed. This profile does also allow you to fish the fly even further up against the shore without losing too much speed on the fly, and even not getting fastened so easily. Very often the salmon follows the fly towards the shore, and take the fly at the moment you start the home take of the line, This is an important property that makes the TD better fishing lines.

Sinking line fishing, just for flooding river?
To that question I would answer "no" immediately, sinking line fishing should be what you are doing the most thru all season,.Even at low water levels a "custom sinking line fishing" is the most effective. With "custom sinking line fishing", I mean correctly selected sink rate of the line in terms of depth and current speed. And in this area the TD lines are quite superior compared md DD. On all fishing from large / medium sized rivers to small river you will find a TD line that are fishing both deep and fast enough. When the river becomes smaller and warmer, it's very effective to fish deep but with high speed. Thus, the key word in relation to the fishing strategy for these conditions is deep and fast.

Double Dencity better on the big river?
Yes, to some extent they may be. S5/s6 s6/s7 lines and are fishing very deep, you will not be able to fish the fly as fast and deep down, for example with the TD S3/S5 / S7 that you can do with DD s6/S7. Therefore it is an advantage to have these two DD sinking lines on a trip during spring flood fishing with really high water flow. But when it is said you will be able to fish deep enough under most conditions with TD S2/S4/S6 and S3/S5/S7.

Triple Dencity's throwing abilities.
For casting, these lines are a dream, they are so easy to lift out of the water that it is simply more efficient to fishing with them than the old DD lines. When it comes to how the line behaves in the air in relation to casting lengths and presentation of the fly, so is it that you actually will cast longer with those lines. And the reason for this is the line structure in relation to line profile and this particular design with 3 different densities that allows the lines just "fly away". I noticed that I actually got better line control on the Snake Roll technique also, when the line / circle hangs in the air now they are steadier and more balanced than before and therefore it is easier to control the anchorage before the forward cast.

New TD line for 2011.
There is a new line this season also, called F/I/S2, this variant will fill the void in between F / H / I and H/I/S3 - it is absolutely perfect!

Read about Rune Martinsen own comments about Tripple D lines.
Triple-D has a slimmer front tapering than Double Dencity. More mass is put on backwards on the line leading to better shed properties. Fish characteristics are also improved under conditions that require delicate and fine presentation. The long front taper provides a slower over roll, this provides opportunities for longer casts. During the summer fishing and autumn conditions Triple-D is an obvious favorite of the two. Triple-D is more balanced in the way it "hangs" in the water, the different degrees of densities will help each other to keep a straight line down the river stream. Triple-D is also an excellent line to early fishing, compared with Double Dencity you have to go up a bit in the sink density to get down in the deep. In places where the current is not so hard the Triple-D is also better than Double Dencity by early fishing.


I would recommend you try to the TD lines, you'll notice right away how much easier they are to fish and cast with. This will help you to fish deeper in an easier way too. And if you fish more often at the deep, you risk only that you will get more and bigger fish - good ride!
