Product Description

Our Mirage Pure Fluorocarbon Tippet is ideal for all saltwater fly fishing, plus steelhead and Atlantic salmon. Also for freshwater nymphing where trout are leader-shy. Refraction index on Mirage??? is very close to water which makes it near invisible to fish. Often you can go up one tippet size and still gain the same results, plus it tends to sink, making it an excellent tippet for nymphing and streamer fishing. Mirage fluorocarbon fly-fishing tippet offers superior abrasion resistance which is critical in many big game and saltwater applications where structure and hard mouths can cause increased abrasion. Fly fishing tippet has line retainer on each spool.

Excellent Tippet Review by MikeV

I've used Orvis Mirage tippets for awhile now. Originally I chose tem because they were rated in the top three overall in a 2012 "tippet shoot-out" study I'd read. I find the Mirage line to be supple, very consistent in diameter and knot strength, true to its rated test strength, and pretty invisible underwater. I bought this 6x because I normally use 7x but find it to be just a bit lighter than I'd like--the inevitable abrasion ends up costing me a fish or a fly a little more often than I'd prefer. Thix 6x should do the trick. I guess I could use something that was highly abrasion resistent, but those are typically stiff, so it's harder to get a natural drift. The Mirage suits me well--good stuff in my opinion. Oh...also, TROUTS Fly Fishing sold it for a great price...and shipped it so fast it got to me before I knew what hit me. I really appreciated that!
