We have included the best tippet material we could find for fishing with larger flies - Frog Hair Copolymer - this is supplied to you in a 0.20mm diameter. It is important when fishing with large, bushy flies to shorten the length of your leader and also step up its thickness - this will reduce any twist in your leader imparted by the larger flies acting like a helicopter rotor.
Go on, fill your boots!
All of this for only £45 (when bought separately this would be roughly £65).

Frog Hair Copolymer:
When fishing Mayflies (and any other large bush fly), it can impart twist into your leader. This is why when fishing this style of fly you need to shorten the length of your leader and setup up the diameter. We are supplying 1 spool of Frog Hair Copolymer tippet (0.20mm diameter), the spool contains 30 meters.
Weatherby's Dry Fly Powder:
Weatherby's Dry Fly Floatant Powder will lift your fly onto the water, allowing you to add life to your fly and entice the rising fish to take! It's supplied in a clear PET bottle. Not only is it 100% recyclable, but the clear bottle allows you to check how much floatant you have before you go fishing. Who wants to run out when you are mid river!
We are supplying with the kit a pair of Nippers (they are bright green, so you will find them easy to see!). These nippers also include a handy nail knot tying tool, making those bank-side tapered leader changes really easy.
Our 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.
