[dropcap]S[/dropcap]cientific Anglers is proud to introduce the first Mastery Textured Professional Taper developed with professional flats guide, Captain Bruce Chard. Chard’s new Grand Slam line taper was developed in the 2011/2012 season to answer the needs that Bruce had for the best all around saltwater line for catching “The Slam” – Tarpon, Permit, and Bonefish. The line features an aggressive taper that is ideal for in-shore saltwater situations and excels at turning over heavy flies and super long leaders. Perfect for a stealthy approach to spooky fish. The head delivers enough energy to cut through rough winds that are often encountered in tropical environments. With his years of knowledge and experience guiding in the Florida keys, Bruce and our fly line developer, Tim Pommer, worked together to bring all of the technology that Scientific Anglers has to offer to develop a saltwater fly line that will change the way you fish the salt.
