White River Fly Shop® Trout Tippet
Just got back from fishing for Lake Erie tributary steelhead. I broke off about 10 different steelhead on the 4x-6lb tippet. This should have been more than adequate for these fish as I've used much lighter tippet in the past, but the water was stained so I stayed with the 4x. Sometimes I wouldn't even get past the initial head shake. All broke at the knots. I used uni's, polymar, and improved cinch and it didn't matter. Maybe it was a bad batch, or it was an old batch. Probably should have stopped somewhere to buy fresh, but thought maybe it was something I was doing wrong. Either way, i'll not get it again. The plus side is that it was very supple and easy to work with.

White River Fly Shop tippet is very Impressive. IT holds knots 100%, and is incrediblely abrasion resistent. In dominican republic, the panfish I catch,(tilapia), have rough mouths. I use 3x tippet for them and have never had a break off. Great tippet!!! highly reccomended.

I bought this to tie my own leaders/tippets. I have fluorocarbon for my nymph rigs and needed mono for my dry flies. This stuff did not do the trick as it drags the fly down as soon as it lays on the water. Interesting quality in a mono.
Having said all of that, it IS a great line. Supple as you could ask for, ties solid knots and holds big fish fast.
I put it into my spinning kit to use as leaders when bait fishing with powerbait, etc.

Great tippet Bass Pro own company... Price is just right and I like the hair tie inside so the line doesnt escape. I like to use 2x and 3x when fishing small trout combined with 4x and 5x leader.
