As many anglers find our tapered leaders to be exceptional we have been asked as a company many times about having our own range of fluorocarbon tippet... You asked and we listened!

The Essential Fly - Fluorocarbon Tippet - 2.42Lb is made from a specially designed fluorocarbon which offers exceptional knot and linier strength, along with very little refractive index as such the clarity means it is very difficult to see when submerged. The high tensile strength will suit most fishing applications in both fresh and saltwater. Just what one needs when you are trying to provoke an aggressive take.

Each spool of tippet can interlock with the other breaking strains making it easy to carry or find at the bottom of your tackle bag. What's more is that each breaking strain has a unique colour band so that you know which one you are getting without having to un-connect them.

Why are ours different?

We designed our fluorocarbon tippet to have a high knot strength and elasticity.
With elasticity of 19-29%, unlike others, these will stretch and not snap immediately. 
It is the combination of stretch and elasticity that will make a difference in your fluorocarbon and you successfully catching a good fish!
