Airflo Fly Lines

Airflo lines are more environmentally friendly and last longer than the competition. Their latest Ridge 2.0 Power Taper line is one of the most exciting lines of 2022.

For nearly 70 years, the majority of fly lines have been made from PVC, a naturally rigid plastic that requires the use of plasticisers to make PVC lines functional.

These plasticisers are anything but a permanent part of a PVC line.

You see, from the minute it’s made, a PVC line begins breaking down, leaching plasticisers into the environment and contaminating you and the waters you fish. Once it has shed     enough of these, it becomes prone to cracking, even failure. If that’s not enough, as it decomposes, PVC is known to release Dioxins, a group of lethal, bioaccumulating toxins.

Consequently, it’s virtually impossible to safely recycle a PVC line.

All of which is why Airflo never uses PVC. Instead, our lines are made from Polyurethane - an inert, stable, fully recyclable material that requires no plasticisers and  lasts far longer than PVC.
