Keep your tippet holder stocked with a few spools of Scientific Anglers' Premium Fluorocarbon Tippet. Not only does fluorocarbon have a higher knot strength than standard nylon tippet, but it is more resistant to abrasion and sun damage, extending the life of the tippet.

Fluorocarbon 5x tippet
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I am a beginner fly fisherman and lately i have been snapping flies every 5 casts or so. With this tippet being much stronger than what I have been using, I haven't snapped nearly as much flies as before. Need to work on my casting still but this tippet has helped me save money on flies!
Bigger Fish, More Fish
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fluorocarbon is the extra edge you need for fishing emergers, nymphing rigs and big streamers. Critical for clear water as fluorocarbon is nearly the same refraction index as water making it nearly invisible. Finally, it is much more abrasion resistant so whether you are getting tangled in the willows of a trout creek or the mangroves in the Keys, the extra nicks and cuts in your line will be better handled with fluorocarbon tippet. Keep both regular monofilament and fluorocarbon.
