Saltwater flats are extremely demanding environments and can demand a lot from a line. To effectively deliver flies to cruising tarpon and have the strength to set the hook in the equivalent of a galvanized bucket is a tall order.
With its balanced taper for covering the widest range of effective distances, the Super-Dri Tarpon is the perfect all-around taper line for fishing the flats. With the strengthened 40lb Power Core, you can rest assured you’ll have what it takes to drive that hook home and be in good hands during the mayhem that ensues.
Available in 10wt to 12wt in floating and intermediate versions.
The flats of the Florida Keys can dish up some challenges that the uninitiated don’t often expect. Big winds, waves, cruising fish, and a laundry list of other goodies mother nature can try and throw out for fun.
With the help of one of the Keys’ most sought-after flats guides; Bruce Chard, we came up with an aggressive front taper line for taking the wind head on and getting your fly and long leader on target. Not the most experienced flats fisherman? No problem. This line was made with novice and advanced anglers alike. When quick shots to a small target in rough conditions are on the menu, there is no equal.
Available in 8wt to 12wt
