Gehrkes XINK® is
now 27 years old.
It may well be the most revolutionary invention in Fly-Fishing since the discovery
of the hook. This product will eliminate the majority of the lead
used in nymphs and wet fly patterns throughout the world if only everyone started
using it. Gehrkes XINK® is
the only patented Fly Sink in the world. All other products are plagiarized
from other industrial sources including the use of common soap. Gehrkes XINK® is
amazing because it is wetter than water without washing off, which was, until
invented by George Gehrke, a chemical impossibility.
Yes, XINK® is unique.
Gehrkes XINK® is
simple to use. Before one gets their streamer or wet fly wet,
simply dress it with a very little amount Gehrkes 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 Gehrkes 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.
Gehrkes 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.
As with all Gehrke Products, Gehrkes XINK® is fully guaranteed to satisfy.
