New for 2021/2022 is the Reel Fly Fishing Covert Fluorocarbon. The new range consists of an improved range from 0X through to 6X ratings. Improved suppleness and better knot strength bring our high-quality but affordable fluorocarbon tippet to avid fly fishing anglers in South Africa.
The use of fluorocarbon is greatly appreciated when stalking skittish fish as well as when water is very clear and thin – great for trout|yellow fish in large still waters and thin streams where waters are very clear. One of the more uncommon known facts about fluorocarbon is that it tends to sink and does not lie on the surface of the water like that of nylon mono-filaments – this a why it is not suitable to dry fly fishing* and will cause your flies to sink and continue sinking. If you switch to a dry fly be sure to change your tippet over to one of our Unreel Copolymer Tippets to ensure a greatly increased floating time.
**It should be noted that on fluorocarbon tippet ratings of 6X and 7X the physical weight and density in relation to the meniscus of the water is now in the favor of the waters, meaning that generally, these lightweight tippets will also float on the surface of the water like that of nylon coplymer/mono-filament**
