Perfect for everything from bonefishing to spring creek trout fishing,
Airflo Sightfree Fluorocarbon tippet is a must-have for those fly
anglers trying to take their game to the next level. As a higher-performance leader and tippet material than monofilament, fluorocarbon can have a critical impact on your fishing success, whether you're fishing around abrasive structures that can saw your tippet in a fight, or targeting sophisticated trout, permit or bonefish that have seen it all. Airflo Sightfree Fluorocarbon Tippet represents a serious investment in your downstream fishing prowess.
Fluorocarbon presents several advantages over monofilament for fly fishing leaders and tippet. First, it is more abrasion resistant and optically superior, meaning you are more likely to entice fish to eat, and, once hooked, you stand a better chance of landing them. Second, fluorocarbon is denser than water, meaning that, unlike mono, it will sink out of the surface film.
When monofilament rests in the surface film, it presents a strand of
defraction to fish looking up that is up to five times wider than the
mono itself. Third, fluoro has less memory (or tendency to coil) than mono. Finally, fluorocarbon like Airflo's Sightfree Tippet lasts much longer than monofilament, with a decades-long shelf life. This means there is no reason to throw away your fluoro before it is all used up.
