Varivas Super Tippet - 8X or 7X:
When fishing small flies, that means small hooks, which in turn means smaller hook eyes. You need a tippet material that has a thin diameter, but is still strong enough to give you a chance in landing the fish. This Varivas nylon tippet has a diameter of 0.9mm and a breaking strain of 1.8lb - this combines with a soft rod should allow you to land fish in the lower flows. Thanks to their unique manufacturing process VARIVAS are able to increases the relative line density making softer and more abrasion-resistant materials that offer higher breaking strength per line diameter with far less memory. This tippet has special resin and non-stress coatings. Applying those special treatments allows this tippet to be ultra-flexible and excellent for delicate fly presentation.
With the new UV and waterproof packaging, you can be sure that your tippet will be in the best condition possible when you open it.
9m Camou French Leader:
This French Leader is made up of an extremely long tapered leader made from monofilament. The taper is made up of a steep but gradual taper, designed to be fished on long and soft fly rods.
The advantage of using a French leader is that you can present your small flies with absolutely zero drag - at both close and long range. The Camou French Leader is made of captive monofilament fibre, which has almost no memory. This allows even the smallest flies to be cast easily.
Length: 900cm (9m).
We are supplying 1 x 9m Hends Camou French Leader, this is ideal when combined with the Varivas tippet for presenting small flies with no drag - keeping all of the leader off the water.
MagMicro - New for 2021:
We are supplying 2 of our MagMicro's, the quick and easy way to add a ‘fly hot spot’. It’s the best way to store and dry your flies whilst on the water - flies stick securely to the MagMicro - It can be attached to your Clothing, Hat, Vest, Pack or Waders. We have made sure that each component of the MagMicro is made to the highest standards, using the best quality materials. The MagMicro measures 32mm in diameter - ideal for creating that hot spot!
Our Own 'Super Secret' Drying Towel:
We've found the ideal solution for drying your flies - not commercially available, so we decided to make our own! More info coming soon on these. The first time they are available is in this box. We will never sell these, as they are a little bit ' homemade' but they work fantastically well.
