Powerflex Wire Bite Tippet by RIO

Fly fishing for Northern Pike and Musky with flies is becoming more and more popular. We often get asked what we like to use to prevent “bite-offs”. Our favourite product by far is RIO’s Powerflex Wire Bite Tippet. It is a tough, flexible nylon-coated wire that’s perfect for sharp toothed critters. This knot-able, braided wire is supple enough to tie directly to the fly. Available in three size options; 20lb, 30lb & 40lb, with 15 feet on each spool. We find for most pike fishing either the 20lb or 30lb is perfect. You can learn more here:
