The Oudachi is a nymphing line that helps you get your fly down deep where the fish are and it easily turns over most flies, even large flies (up to the size of streamers) at long line lengths. It does this with a furled fluorocarbon tip section. It then has a HI-Vis Section about the fluorocarbon section so you can see where your line is and as also a great visual for depth control and strike indication. The rest of the furled line up to the rod tip connection is a plain grey color.
This is a great line for rivers with deeper holes, larger rivers, lakes, ponds, and anywhere you want to get deep fast. It is also the best line for casting heavy flies that don’t cast well on other lines.
Here is what Doug Kinney says about this line:
“Just when I thought all furled lines are created equal and technology progression on such a simple thing couldn’t exist, I discovered Moonlit Furled lines. I’ve had the privilege to test out a number of Moonlit lines extensively in a variety of fishing conditions. The line that stands out the most, and my new regular go-to line, is the Oudachi. Moonlit hit it out of the park on this one. This line is an absolute must have in your line quiver.
I would call this line an intermediate sink tip line for the tenkara world. One that, to my knowledge, has never existed until now. Here is why you need one: If you fish still water, fast water, deep water, beadheads, micro streamers, and swing soft hackles you will love this line because it gets your fly into the “zone” faster. The line is comprised of 3 seamless sections tapered from butt to tip. Butt section, indicator section, and sink tip.
I normally fish longer lines (15-18′) in bigger water. The oudachi casts well on any of my rods and turns over great. I find no problems getting my beadhead or weighted fly to the bottom quickly in the zone while keeping the water line within the indicator section for high visibility to detect strikes as it’s ticking along the bottom. Tie on a soft hackle, let it swing and then give it the Leisenring lift on the dangle and it keeps the fly properly suspended on a controlled ascent to the surface. Get a short strike? Reset the dangle and get ready because it sinks quickly again.
The best part about this line is it can be custom ordered to any length to match the water you fish. The quality is top notch. This is hands down the best wet fly line you can fish.”
