Airflo Euro Nymph Line .60mm (braid core)
Aside from FIPS-Mouche rules outlawing "mono rigs" in competition several years ago, we have strongly preferred ultralight 'euro' lines to pure monofilament ever since we got our hands on them. Fly line handles much better than monofilament. You have more control when casting, drifting and fighting fish and even the mono core euro lines are less prone to coiling and tangling than a true spool of straight mono fishing line. Relative to more conventional fly line tapers the micro diameter and weight of euro lines eliminates sag in the guides, heightening strike detection and increasing the range at which you can successfully attain a natural drift.
Airflo has dominated the European fly line market for years, due in no small part to their legendary durability and well thought out taper designs. Their euro nymphing specific 'level' line comes with a supple, yet low stretch, braided core, a fishy olive-drab color and hot orange tip for better strike detection and their proprietary 'Super dri' technology for excellent flotation when your line is actually on the water. This line comes with phenomenally small welded micro loops on each end.
*note: While this is a braid core line it's a variety of braid that makes the super glue splice impossible, better to try to make a true micro loop, nail knot or other connection.

Here's what Airflo has to say:
"This .60mm line combines suppleness with incredibly low stretch for superb performance and strike detection. And its hi-viz orange tip ensures you'll see those strikes every bit as much as feel them. Micro loops at both ends provide easy, low-profile connections. 100% FIPS compliant."
