Gehrke’s 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. Gehrke’s 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. Gehrke’s 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.
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.
As with all Gehrke Products, Gehrke’s XINK® is fully guaranteed to satisfy.
