Video: ARC Fly Fishing Lines

March 17, 2015 By: timromano

Travis Thompson, Co-founder of ARC Fishing, gives MidCurrent an overview of the new company’s fly lines, which bring some innovative features not found with many other lines–things like variable compression zones that maximize performance of individual segments of the line, and permanent Nano PTFE coatings which repel water, dirt and surface scum, maximizing line float. Other features: a grooved line profile that reduces tangles and friction, which in turn produces higher line speeds for longer, more accurate casts; 6% low-stretch Response Core for superior line sensitivity and solid hook set; a durable UV, sunscreen and DEET-resistant 100% polyurethane outer layer; as well as welded front and back loops for easy leader rigging and line change out. They also come standard with a line ID system welded into the back loop.
