Not happy with the PVC flyline technology of the day, Paul Burgess, a mad keen flyfisher, who also happened to be a qualified engineer, set about changing the process by which modern flylines are manufactured. Moving away from the traditional tower system, Paul began extruding fly lines with computer controlled systems that allowed for control over production accuracy previously thought impossible.
That was the late 80's, now over 20 years later, Airflo are the worlds leading manufacturer of solvent free flylines and responsible for developing a series of innovations unparalleled by any other line manufacturer during that period. Whilst we may not have invented the flyline, innovation has been a keystone at every stage in our development, being the originators of Polyurethane coatings, creating the first welded loops, developing low stretch cores and even the worlds first density compensated flylines.
More recently, we've developed an advanced range of flylines with Ridged coatings that reduce surface friction and improve shootability - each breakthrough offering a truly tangible improvement, not some invisible technology developed in the minds of the marketers.
'Green' or 'Environmentally Friendly' is something all fishing companies like to claim, and whilst we are more than happy to make you aware that our coatings are kinder to the environment, it was originally the search for a polymer that didn't leach solvents, was unaffected by UV and ultimately just lasted longer that lead us to pursue Polyurethane as an alternative to solvent based PVC.
The final result is what we believe to be the worlds most advanced range of flylines and judging by the bandwagon we've created with our continuous stream of innovation, most of our competitors would seem to agree.

Power Core as standard, and you'll need it to help set hooks at the increased distance you'll be fishing! Doubles as an excellent switch casting line in confined spaces.
The SuperDri technology has been developed for the serious floating line angler, featuring a friction reducing coating which lets the line glide through the rod rod rings and adds yards to your cast. The Super Dri's coating gives you unparalleled floatation with the ability to repel water, dirt and surface scum better than any material in the history of fly lines.
