Ultra 3 in the Rocky
In March of last year I made my annual fly fishing trip to
the San Juan River in New Mexico. Prior to my trip my
preparations included the replacement of my fly line. I do
most of my fishing on the San Juan River with a nine foot
four weight fly rod so my choice for a fly line was the
Scientific Anglers Ultra 3 WF4F. The line's performance on
the San Juan was outstanding. I fished this wonderful river
in New Mexico from March 15th through April 1st. Every

larva then switching to dries when hatches would appear. I

I found the need to clean the line on several occasions with
a mild soapy water.

four weight once again on the Firehole River in Yellowstone
National Park. Once again I enjoyed the performance and

and Caddis hatches through the month of June.

minor cracking was developing in portions of my fly line.

fly line, I found the people at Scientific Anglers very nice
people to conduct business with while honoring their company
guarantee and replacing my fly line at no
I would purchase another
Scientific Angler's Ultra 3 Fly Line more for the customer
service that I received than for the product quality that I
