Leland on Scientific Anglers Redfish Fly Fishing Line
Cooper tails silhouetted the morning sun, is there a prettier sight?
Not as far as we are concerned. If you need a fly line to load your rod
ASAP and turn over that big spoon fly
, the bullet head of the Redfish
Taper Fly Line does it all. It seconds well as big wind fly line as
well. We'll be seeing you in the Laguna Madre, TX.
- Type of Taper: Weight Forward Floating
- Total Length: 100 ft
- Core: Stiff Braided Monofilament Nylon
- Coating: AST (Advanced Shooting Technology)
- Color: Horizon
Leland on Scientific Anglers Fly
Scientific Anglers Fly Fishing Products
was founded in 1945 by fellow anglers Leon Martuch, Clare Harris, and
Paul Rottiers in Midland, Michigan. They developed the first modern,
plastic coated fly line in 1952, replacing silk fly lines which had
been in use for well over 100 years. In 1954, Scientific Anglers Fly
Fishing Products introduced the Air Cel, widely considered the first
modern floating fly lines. Scientific Anglers' development of 3M
Microballoons in 1959 revolutionized the way that fly lines float and
is the standard technology by which all manufacturers float their
lines today. 3M, then known as the Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing
Company, acquired Scientific Anglers Fly Fishing Products in 1973.
Scientific Anglers wrote the book on
early modern fly line development, with research and development
resources way beyond the means of other major fly line makers that we
usually see on the shelves.

Scientific Anglers on AST Technology
"The 'dry-slick' coating that enhances every aspect of floating line performance.
within the line coating, amazing AST - Advanced Shooting Technology -
has redefined fly-line performance by achieving a unique 'dry'
slickness that keeps the line permanently slick and continuously clean.
Try an AST line just once, and nothing else will do.
dry slickness of AST prevents dirt and algae from clinging to line,
which means line stays cleaner and floats higher for longer intervals.
is lightning slick for the fastest, smoothest shooting of your life.
With AST, line shoots virtually friction-free through the guides and
keeps on doing it for the life of the line - without dressing.
shoots through the guides with minimum impediment for exceptional
distance. And cleaner AST lines fly through the air with minimum
silicone-coated lines and dressed lines, the AST coating doesn't give
dirt and algae anything to cling to, so line stays free of debris that
can ruin performance.
AST coating is inherently more durable. And because line stays so clean
and free of debris with AST, the line itself is significantly less
prone to wear and corrosion.
Mastery Series Floating Lines,
all with AST, are comprised of a PVC mixture with 3M Microballoons™ and
the dry AST compound right to the core. Integral within the coating,
AST will never wear off or wash off. It's always slick.
AST-formulated slow-sinking lines
use a delicate balance of PVC mixed with the dry AST compound. This
unique combination makes our Bonefish, Tarpon, and Striped Bass tapers
the best-performing slow-sinking lines in fly fishing."

When Scientific Anglers™ Mastery
Series introduces a new fly line, you can be sure it is the finest
performing fly line for its application. The Scientific Anglers
Floating Fly Lines all have significant advantages over anything else
on the fly fishing market. At 3M Scientific Anglers™ Fly Fishing
Products, we have an ongoing challenge to our scientists and taper
designers, and that is to set a new standard in performance for every
fly line that carries the Scientific Anglers name. It is not an easy
undertaking and it requires much trial and error and extensive
testing – not only on the water but also in laboratories.
Fortunately at Scientific Anglers, we have unparalleled resources and
the finest fly fishing minds in the business dedicated to building
better fly lines. The list of Scientific Anglers Fly Fishing
Products' advancements is unmatched and we're only getting started.
We hope you'll join us on the water so that you can see – firsthand
– that there is much, much more to fly fishing than just the
