    Default 3# Di3?

    Does anyone know of a manufacturer doing a 3# Di3 in clear or that awesome clear camo? Cant seem to find any thing on the net?

    Silent along the mazy margin stray, And with fur-wrought fly delude the prey

    Think Teeny did a 100grain sinking line for a #3. Otherwise not sure that any of the major manufacturers make a sinking line that small. Cortland do a Precision 3" a second sink tip for a #4.

    Good luck!

    Matt, I have an Airflo 3wt DI3. Been used once, colour is Dark Green. Probably about 8 - 10 years old but still perfect. Will swop for 10 of those nice chart and white clousers you tie

    You won't get a DI3 that is clear. To achieve the sinkrate requires dense metal powder to be added to the coating. I suggest you take Darryl up on his offer.
