The Magnum Taper works well for dries with an extended leader or use a heavy butt leader when casting muddlers, mouse patterns or a team of woolly buggers and glow flies.
The Magnum Glow in the Dark line was designed for night time fishing for trout which was pretty much invented in Michigan. Anglers there fish for trout at night during the hex hatch as well as throughout the rest of the summer with mouse patterns. So the glow line is used for this night fishing for trout. Could also apply for chasing Murray Cod or Barra at night as well.
You must charge the line from time to time with a flashlight or UV light like those we use for curing UV epoxy in fly tying.
The whole line glows. It's not a bright glow but is plenty bright when an anglers eyes are adjusted to the darkness.

SHORT BELLY TAPER
We’ll get to the point. The Mastery Short Belly Taper, or SBT, is just that: a short-bellied fly line with an extended handling section. That means more mass is distributed to the front of the line, which assists in turning over weighted flies and performing roll casts. Excellent for single-handed Spey casts as well, the SBT isn’t your traditional weight-forward fly line, which is just the way we like it.
- Short head design with handling line delivers flies at short-to-medium range with extended line control
- Turns over weighted nymphs and streamers, yet offers light presentations when used with long leaders
- Camo non spooking tip, bright colored belly for easier handling and line control
- Well suited for single-handed Spey casts
- Braided multifilament core
- SA ID – SA MS SBT WF X F (X = line weight)
