Fishing Trout Tips

New gear: TroutHunter EVO nylon tippet

TroutHunter, the iconic fly fishing outfitter and fly shop in Island Park, Idaho, on the banks of the storied Henry’s Fork, is launching a new line of nylon tippet that the company claims has the strength of flourocarbon and floats better than other nylon tippets.

Using EVO nylon technology, the company notes, the new tippet is also virtually memory free and, thanks to an organic coating, it is impervious to water once the package is open, which adds to the tippet’s usable life span. TroutHunter also claims the new organic coating makes for better knot strength.

The new TroutHunter tippet retails at $9.95 and is available in fly shops.
