2 x Hi Viz yellow level line #4 & #6; This is an amazing fluorocarbon level line is pretty soft for a fluorocarbon line. In 2016 it became my favourite level line and simply the best I’ve tried. It may be slightly more expensive but it is such a great line! I know for a fact that this line is selling for £18.99 on a few websites.
2 x Claret level lines #4 & #6.
1 x Multi coloured level line #5.
Made up ready to simply attach to your rod and fish. On each quality spool is 12ft of level line (plus one 12ft furled line), tippet and our very own KBK fly or a proven black sakasa kebari.
Fluorocarbon level line is probably one of the most significant advancement in tenkara since the development of the telescopic rod. It gives you some key advantages over a tapered line and should always be part of your kit. Now they are also available at such a good price it is certainly worth carrying a few different sizes.
Tenkara is in essence all about the ability of keeping a line off the water and making the fly behave like a fly and the level line is by far the best way of doing this. The greater density of the fluorocarbon line means being able to cast a lighter line and keeping it off the water to achieve just this.
Fluorocarbon level line
With very little memory, a simple pull through your line straightener will usually iron out any kinks, a fluorocarbon level line is often the key to whether you catch a fish or not.
1 x Furled Line;
The history of Furled leaders shows us they have been around for generations. Our ancestors made them from horsehair, silk and various other materials to get the best presentation for their flies.
With no memory at all we recommend the best fluorocarbon tippets to compliment this as a nylon tippet will curl and renders the bonus of a no memory leader pointless.
