Remember, fluorocarbon sinks. If you plan on fishing for steelhead on or near the surface, you have to use nylon tippet. Trust us, this new Umpqua Tough Nylon Tippet is sure enough tough. You can tie any knot you wish and trust in the fact that this material doesn’t mind a rock rub or two.
With its low visibility olive tint, Umpqua’s co-polymer nylon tippet material is an almost flawless marriage of great tensile strength, elasticity, suppleness, and abrasion-resistance. The result is a tippet material of superior WET KNOT STRENGTH that remains supple enough to allow a fly to really “swim”.
