Cadno Silk Lines


These lines are hand-made from the finest Japanese Silk, and then traditionally oil impregnated under vacuum and dressed by hand to ensure a long life and wonderful casting characteristics.

The tapers have been evolved with the help and expertise of a range of friends across the world, who have all contributed to producing some of the nicest casting lines you will ever lay your hands on!

The lines are available in Double Taper (DT) and Weight Forward (WF), and are made according to the old NAACC designations, and listed here with the approximate 'modern' AFTMA numbers.

The lighter DT lines (3 & 4 wts) are 25 yards in length, to help fit onto smaller reels to balance lighter rods, the heavier lines (5, 6 & 7 wts) are 30 yards long.

The Weight Forward lines are all 30 yards long.

Lines are available in Natural Straw colour, Emerald Green or Coffee Brown....all the lines are dyed by hand so some colour variation may occur!

The lines are supplied coiled in a very nice box with a tub of Red Tin Mucilin, the recommended floatant.

Please note: shipping is not immediate - could take 2-3 weeks to arrive.

Shipping Information
We ship at cost to the buyer and in the majority of cases do so via UPS with full insurance and signature. There are cheaper options but our experience has been that you get what you pay for and that it's not worth taking risks when shipping what are often one-of-a-kind items. Your shipping estimate will be calculated at checkout and if you have any questions please contact us. Please note the buyers are responsible for any applicable import duties or fees that may levied. Due to the importance of packing items carefully please allow up to two weeks for arrival (depending on how busy we are) though we certainly do our best to get items to you as expeditiously as possible.
Other Terms
Unless otherwise noted, all items come with a 3-day inspection period during which they can be returned to us for a full refund (provided that they are in the same condition in which they left our shop). Return shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. If an item is returned, we will issue a refund within 10 days upon receipt. Refunds will be either administered by providing a check or, when possible, by canceling a credit card purchase.
