For many fly fishing isn’t just a hobby, if you’re like me it’s a way of life. There isn’t a day I don’t think about something fishing or fly tying related! Which brings me onto fly fishing gear, if your out on the water week in week out you’ll want to be kitted out with the best gear that you can afford, In order to make to make your fishing trips that more easier.
With umpteen companies offering the best fly lines on the market, I’ll be hoping that this little review of the new Airflo SuperFlo fly line gives you some sort of helping hand!
Whether you’re looking for a new fly line for your river outfit or stillwater set up, look no further than the SuperFlo fly line series. The line comes in two forms, a presentation taper, from 3 to 7wt and a stillwater taper from 5 to 9 weight.
Which fly line do I choose? When river fishing I’d opt for the presentation taper as when you need to get them flies exactly where you need them with precision and delicacy and the least disruption. This line lands like a feather on the water, just what you need when stalking them wild brown trout! If I was fishing for stocked fish on a Stillwater or reservoir I would look to the Stillwater taper, it Loads the rod quickly, casts beautifully and angles are able to achieve distance at ease.
After a couple of trips out with the presentation taper line from taking it out of the box to making the first couple of casts on the river, one of the first things I noticed was there was zero memory. I’ve had many lines in the past that have coiled up before even being used, unlike the SuperFlo this isn’t a problem! Another thing I like is many people don’t like the welded loops on fly lines however I am a fan of them and the Airflo welded loops are some of the best and smoothest on the market with them not being bulky.
With many brands on the market offering thin diameter fly lines for the cost of this line, in my eyes you cant go far wrong with the presentation SuperFlo fly line. It’s a line that is a perfect all rounder and I certainly wont be changing my fly line anytime soon!

A GIANT 98 Pound Catfish = New Lake Record

Catfish are accessible, fun to target, and taste delicious. Start learning more about these underrated fish and stock up on catfish gear using the links below!
