STROFT GTM TIPPET STROFT GTM Tippet
STROFT GTM Tippet $8.45
Great value 50 meter Spools. STROFT GTM tippet material is the strongest in the world, it is absolutely unrivalled for strength vs diameter, the best, number 1, none better. More competition anglers and top pro guides use STROFT than any other brand. STROFT® is a monofilament nylon that has been formulated and treated during production to produce a high-strength, controlled-stretch, material. A typical example is the 0.20 mm (.008inch, 3X) STROFT® with a strength of 4.20 kg (9.2 lbs). This is 30% stronger than some other popular high-strength nylons. STROFT® also provides superior knot strength. STROFT® GTM is produced using a multi-level tempering (heat-treatment) process to remove material stresses formed during extrusion, cooling, and drawing. You will not find a better tippet material than those made by STROFT Got questions? - Drop us a line, we'd love to hear from you.
STROFT FC1 TIPPET 25M STROFT FC1 TIPPET
STROFT FC1 Flurocarbon Tippet $16.45
Stroft FC1 100% Fluorocarbon Tippet Material Waku's new fluorocarbon material is the best in test according to the EFFTA. Stroft FC1 has an exceptionally high knot strength and the highest breaking strains that the EFTTA have as yet been able to confirm for lines made from 100% fluorocarbon. Stroft have paid particular attention to the sensitivity and feed-back as well as the resistance to abrasion. Peak performance can be expected in both these properties, even though the line can not be classed as particularly hard, they have low elasticity and are best described as being supple and tough. FC1 Fluorocarbons have the highest breaking strains that the EFTTA have as yet been able to confirm for fluorocarbon lines. Compare FC1 againts other Fluorocarbon material. Has it been independantly audited? - we doubt it. As with most mono's, the majority of Fluorocarbon on the market carry ratings that are overstated. Colour: crystal clear Spool Size: 25m & 100 meter spools Available in the following specifications: 0.14mm - Test: 1.9 kg (4.1 lbs) X Equivilent: 6X 0.16mm - Test: 2.5 kg (5.1 lbs) X Equivilent: 5X 0.18mm - Test: 2.9 kg (6.39 lbs) X Equivilent: 4.5X 0.20mm - Test: 3.6 kg (7.9 lbs) X Equivilent: 4X You will not find a better tippet material than those made by STROFT Got questions? - Drop us a line, we'd love to hear from you.

Wyatt regards these flies as 'Trout Ammo' - His style in unconventional and yet extremely effective. Each fly is designed to be highly robust and simple to tie while presenting the essential triggers. FEATURING Volume One: Wyatts' famous Deer Hair Sedge: Mayfly variant and large terrestrial variant. Wyatt's Deer Hair Emerger - Snow Shoe Hare emerger - Dirty Duster - Red Tag - Black and Peacock - Griffiths Gnat - Spent Spinner - Chironomid Buzzer Volume Two: Hares Ear Nymph, weighted and unweighted. Buzzer, weighted and unweighted - Partridge and Hare - Damselfly - Fur Fly - Desolation Baitfish - Rubber legs Woolly Bugger - Magnum Zonker.   Bob Wyatt Bob Wyatt has fly-fished for trout in North America, Europe and New Zealand since the 1950s, and has been a regular writer for FlyLife, and Fly Fishing and Fly Tying magazines for many years.  His book, Trout Hunting, challenged some conventional thinking regarding how trout work, and presented some fresh insights on why some great old flies continue to catch fish after a century or more of increasing fishing pressure.  The reason is that, contrary to much expert opinion, trout are not getting smarter.  If presented well, some fly designs are basically irresistible to a feeding trout. Over fifty years of fly fishing has convinced Wyatt that a few basic designs will cover almost any fishing situation, and in most cases will catch fish better than specific patterns created for the so-called ‘selective trout’.  The reason they work so well is because of the way a trout’s brain works.  These fly designs are based on the most important ‘triggers’ to a trout’s feeding response – a fly’s size, shape and posture in the water.  In fact, Wyatt regards a suggestive impression of a trout’s food to be far more effective than a close copy imitation. Presentation is the key.  With these flies you can confidently fish for trout, anywhere they swim. Runtime: 90 mins each DVD Format: Universal, plays all countries (Both NTSC and PAL compatible) Bonus Content: Streamside chats with Bob. Tricks, tips, retrospective and advice from a master fly angler.
