Gehrke’s XINK® is simple to use. Before one gets their streamer or wet fly “wet”, simply dress it with a very little amount Gehrke’s XINK®. That wet fly is then condemned to sink forever.
Why XINK®? What are the advantages, really? Consider the following.
A lead-wrapped nymph will:
- 1. Go slower than the river current passing by. It is dragging because the nymph’s specific gravity is grossly separated from the density of water.
- 2. A nymph dressed with just Gehrke’s XINK® will sink just as fast, if not often faster than a nymph with lead wraps in it.
- 3. The nymph that is lightly dressed with just XINK® will tumble along in a current more naturally than a lead-weighted one. Often, our customers catch 3 fish for every one compared to the old method. Lead weighted flies also tend to ride up side down and unnaturally.
Gehrke’s XINK® will also sink tippets and leaders except the super hard/slick brands. XINK® works great with Maxima hand-tied leaders and tippets including other brands. XINK® also is marvelous in increasing the sinking rates of sinking tip and full length SINKING fly lines. In fact, it’s almost a miracle on its ability for a fly fisherman to go deep, and fast! Shortened leaders, which contain 18 inches each of butt, taper, and tippet lengths, allow close, controlled tracking with increased fish strikes throughout the day. The product the pros use.
