Fly tippet plays a critical role in any angler’s fly rod setup. If you aren’t already familiar with the term, fly tippet is a monofilament fly line which gets attached to the end of the leader, or where the fly gets tied. Tippet is a very small gauge line, usually between two and four feet long, and is typically the thinnest part of the entire fly line. This allows the tippet to be virtually invisible to fish, because if it weren’t, it probably wouldn’t be difficult for fish to call a fly’s bluff. Another key facet of tippet is its flexibility. Truly flexible tippet gives way always to the fly, allowing the fly to determine where it goes on its own. This makes the fly float naturally as if it were swimming, instead of simply being pulled around by the line. Additionally, fly tippets help preserve the leader which can deteriorate significantly over time. In any case, you can find the best in new and used tippet right here on our website.
