Original T-Series Saltwater T-Series Mini-Tip Series


Jim Teeny with nice Chinook.

Jim Teeny grew up fishing for trout, steelhead and salmon. He figured out in a hurry that the closer to a fish's mouth you put the fly, the more likely the fish will bight it. Most fish are not holding near the surface. Getting the fly to them often involves the use of a sinking fly line. He developed a series of lines that would effectively cover all situations when encountering fish that were holding in normal moving water. They are called the "T" Series. Developed in the early eighties, these were the first of the one-piece, fast-sinking, shooting-head-configuration weight-forward fly
lines. The running lines are color coded for easy identification. These lines gained instant recognition as being the most consistent tool for catching anadromous fish in streams around the world, to the point that even the subsequent copies of these lines are often called Teeny Lines.  They are just as useful as ever.  If you fish for winter steelhead with a single hand fly rod and only have one line, make it a T-300.  If you want to cover all the bases carry aT-130,  T-200, T-300 and T-400.   Don't forget your Teeny Nymphs.

TS Series Saltwater Lines
weight forward fly line
30' fast sinking tip
 

The TS Series represents a longer version of the original Teeny T-Series fly lines. The sinking section is 30 feet long  with a 70 foot running line section (including the 3' rear taper). The floating portion of the line is made with Jim's new “HPC” coating (high performance coating), totaling 100 feet. The title of the line is

Saltwater Series, but it works equally well in freshwater when distance is important. The reason Jim designed this line was for anglers who prefer to cast long distances of up to 100 feet. Jim found this line to be very useful on many of our big wide rivers on the west coast where casting distance is important. What we like about this type of line is if you wish to fish close in, say 20 to 30 feet, you can easily do this. Simply roll cast some of the sinking line. Short leaders seem to work best with these lines. We usually run about 4 feet of leader off fly line when fishing for Steelhead or Salmon. The best way to cast this type of line is to get the color change to your rod tip and roll cast your line to the surface and then immediately make a single false cast and then shoot it where you want it to go. The favorite size for most blue water fishing, including fishing for Billfish is the TS-550 which is perfect for quick casting and excellent balance to turn over large flies. The TS-550 is perfect for fast action 12 weight rods.  For slower action 12-weight rods or 11-weight rods try the 450-grain line.  The 350-grain line works well for 10-weight rods.  The 250-grain rod cast well on #9 and #8 weight rods.

Teeny Mini Tip Lines
Jim says, "When I first thought of the mini tip design I was thinking of trout fishing in lakes and streams, and/or fishing for sockeye and chum salmon in Alaska. This fly line works well in a large variety of waters on most types of fish. Steelhead, Salmon, Bass, and Bluegill are just a few. The design is a weight forward taper floating line with our new “HPC” coating (high performance coating) with five

feet of quick sinking tip. It is easy to cast with great visibility to the angler. Easy to pick up and cast again with great line control during your drift. The Mini Tip line is my personal favorite fly line for most subsurface fishing, except for when you need to get down quickly in heavy currents or deep waters. In rivers, a leader length of 4 to 6 feet is usually the best. If fish are suspended in slow deep pools a 9 to 12 foot leader is best, as it makes a more natural presentation of your fly to the fish without motion or shadow from your line. If you need a line to get your fly down with minimal line drag and excellent control the Mini Tip should be the line for you.
