Airflo Super Dri

Ridge Tactical Trout
More than a decade ago Airflo revolutionized the fly line industry by developing the technology to build lines from Pollyurethane instead of the PVC used by all the other manufacturers, and in the process created a series of fly lines that were infinitatly more durrable, stayed cleaner, floated better, and eliminted the excessive stretch that plagued conventonal PVC lines. Now, Airflo’s next quantim leap forward in fly line technology has arrived—Super Dri—which takes advantage of a wave of new nano-engineered hydorphobic materials that give us what amounts to a Super Teflon fly line that repells water and dirt so effectivly that they float higher and pick up from the waer is noticably easier (less friction) than any other fly line on the planet. And, these supple floaing lines are reinforced in the “haul zone” with a stiffer coating to bring increased csting ease and distance into the equasiln.

Super Dri Elite

The "go-to" trout line. With a modest front taper and standard head length, this line does it all—good for all aspects of trout fishing. Available in WF3F to WF6F in Sunrise Yellow with a Lichen Green “zone.”  $79.99


Super Dri Exceed

Designed for todays fast action fly rods. The ¼ line wt. heavier weight forward head has a condensed taper optimized for casting into the wind and generating higher line speeds. WF5 to WF7, color is Pumpkin with a Lichen Green zone section. $79.99



Airflo Streamer Max Long

Ridge Tactical Trout
While these Streamer Max flylines were originally designed for getting big flys deep into fast running freshwater currents, they’re also absolutely perfect for surf fishing and other on-shore saltwater fly fishing pursuits, Additionally, the Streamer Max Long is available in 200, 250, and 300 gr. Weights—ideal for more accurately matching the lighter 6-8 weight rods most often used for surf and general on-shore saltwater fly fishing. As with all Airflo fly lines, the Streamer Max lines are made with Polyurethane instead of PVC, making them infinitely more durable, able to stand up to all manner of bug sprays, etc., that will kill conventional fly lines; their “Power Core” has way less stretch than conventional PVC lines for better hooking characteristics; and…then…there’s their unique absence of the excessive coiling that plagues conventional PVC lines. Length: 100’ (30 sinking head with intermediate back taper and running line).

Range Grains Sink Tip Length Sink Rate
WF-6/7 200 30 feet 7 ips (T 7)
WF-7/8 250 30 feet 7.5 ips (T 8)
WF-8/0 300 30 feet 8 ips (T 10)

 

 


 


Cold Saltwater Sniper

cold saltwater sniperAirflo breaks with tradition to solve the most common problem facing saltwater fly fishers: casting as far as possible into the wind with large flies. The Sniper series of floating, fast-intermediate, and fast sinking line densities gives casters “easy distance” by concentrating the mass of the weight forward portion of the line into a 30’ head. Shorter heads sink well and are easier to roll cast to the surface prior to the next cast. The running line is made from a supple, no-tangle coating over a new low memory, low stretch braid core. This new running line core material allows for a solid hook set at long distance—without tangles. The three Sniper lines—floating fast Intermediate, and type-7 fast sinking—have different weights and tapers to optimize their performance, and should be ordered according to the number (8, 9, or 10) normally required for a given rod—Airflo does the rest. Together, these three lines will cover just about any saltwater situation, and are highly recommended for their exceptional performance and durability. The fast / intermediate sinking line has a sinking rate of 1 ½” per sec. and floating running line, and the D7 Sinking line has a sink rate of 7” per sec. with an intermediate running line. Length: 120’ $84.99




Depth Finder

Airflo Depth Finder

Depth Finder lines are integrated shooting-tapers, 30’ sinking heads welded to 80’ of small diameter floating running line for maximum casting distance. Fresh or saltwater, these lines are designed to go d..eee..p. Each Depth Finder incorporates the highest density tungsten coatings possible for maximum sink rate, density compensated for uniform rate of descent over the entire sinking head, allowing the fly to go deeper, with a more direct, slack free, connection for superior hook-setting. Depth Finders are manufactured from Polyurethane—a thermoplastic polymer—ensuring incredible durability and a high resistance to cracking, a particularly attractive asset in rough, abrasive, saltwater environments. And, the Polyurethane coatings give the Depth Finder an unequaled suppleness—virtually no coiling, which greatly aids casting distance, and deters exasperating tangles. Length: 110’ (30’ head, 80’ running line). Sizes: 200, 300, and 400 grains with floating running lines. Color: all Depth Finder models have their own running line color for easy definition--200 fl. pink, 300 fl. Green, 400 fl. orange. $84.99

Precision Platinum

Precision PlatinumThe Precision Platinum is Cortland’s latest addition to their ground breaking Precision Dyna-Tip floating trout line series. Developed specifically for versatile performance in a wide range of difficult-to-extreme trout fishing situations: from large rivers and tailwaters - to spring creeks and small streams. The new Precision Platinum line features a modified Rocket2 taper with a longer head, extended rear taper and oversized running line to greatly assist longer roll-casting, and line mending, as well as exceptionally stable loops and line control. The new Platinum also features Cortland’s high-floating Dyna-Tip - a 3-foot hi-visibility white tip section especially formulated from a proprietary material that floats higher and lands more softly than conventional fly lines. The unique Dyna-Tip uses 21st Century technology (not just more micro-balloons) to float all day in the toughest conditions for longer, drag-free drifts and improved line control whether fishing dries or weighted nymphs. Like all Precision Dyna-Tip lines, the new Platinum is formulated with Cortland’s proprietary DuraSlik coating, which is super-slick, durable and ultra-quiet in the guides – and significantly reduces surface friction for faster shooting, higher line speeds, and longer casts. A unique low-memory formulation remains supple in cold water yet won’t wilt in summer heat – and resists coiling after long storage on your reel. And, there’s a welded loop at the end to make switching leaders quick and easy. A great Summer Steelhead line! Sizes: WF 5-8, Taper: WF, Color: moss green with a 3’ white Dyna-Tip. $69.00
