The Airflo Story

I will be honest and say that I have not used an Airflo line in years. They used to have a reputation of being a bit poor however to be honest I never noticed any difference between them and other makes. Like anything some folk swear by them and some do not!

Kieron Jenkins shared a video discussing Airflo fly lines up on YouTube which is actually pretty interesting.

    Airflo have always made decent fast sinking lines, but recently they have realised that real trout feed near the surface. I will stick my long rubber neck out and say that their ridge lines are excellent..
    Their rods are still mince though! All in my completely honest, humble and very anonymous opinion!

  • Thanks for posting this A’! I hope you and some of your readers enjoyed it?

    Thanks also for the kind words Alex. Im glad you find the ridge lines good, have you thought about trying the Airflo Super-Dri fly line? I’ve been using the Super-Dri Elite: http://www.fishtec.co.uk/buy.cfm/fly-lines/super-dri-elite/40/yes/75092 for the past year, and it shines well above any barrio, cortland or rio line if used. I work for Fishtec but am not the type to use a product over another because im associated with that company. In my opinion this is one of the best floating fly lines on the market. If you’re ever in the market for another floater, drop me a line, you too A’.

  • Hey Kieron, I have never found a line that does not sink at the tip – does it sink at the tip?

    Alex, my pal Jim Burns uses an 4 weight Airflo rod for his dry fly work and it is a wee gem. Before I had a go at it I would never have considered them but now…..

I really enjoy reading your comments - say something!
