Best New Fly Line
RIO Products repeated last year’s triumph with another outstanding fly line for EFTTEX 2013. It says its Perception line is ‘probably the most innovative fly line ever made’.
But there was strong competition and the UK’s Snowbee – traditionally strong in this sector – was runner-up with its ‘soft and supple’ XS-Plus ‘Stealth’ line, which has been specifically designed for fishing with lightweight rods and small reels.
There were also the new offerings from the revitalised Cortland company and EFTTEX regular Traun River from Germany with its All in One Tapered Nymph Leader.
