Scientific Anglers Absolute Trout

“This tippet review first appeared in the 2020 Gear Guide, now on sale at bookstores and fly shop nationwide, and also at osgnewsstand.com".

The most challenging trout in the world are often the ones feeding on small flies in flat water with varied yet subtle currents. Sometimes your eyes can’t even pick out the different current lanes, but they are there, and when the water is slow, the trout have the time and the ability to see everything. They sense every microcurrent in their natural worlds, and if something seems just a little off, your fly is ignored. Worse, an unnaturally dragging fly can set off alarm bells, causing fish to stop feeding or move.

Scientific Anglers helps overcome these challenges with Absolute Trout, a super-limp tippet material made from copolymer blends designed to reduce water absorption for higher knot strength—this is especially important when you’re dealing with larger trout and extremely fine tippets. Absolute Trout is available in 0X-7X clear and also in a Stealth Green color 3X-7X for reduced flash and ultra-wary fish. $7 | scientificanglers.com
