Why the Triangle Taper?

 Winner of the coveted Rod & Reel magazine "Kudo" award, the Triangle Taper is ideal for trout and salmon fishing. It is available in all of the sizes to fit the full range of both single and double handed fly rods.

The Triangle Taper configuration is a continuous forward taper in the head of the line. Head length can vary from 27 to 80 feet depending on the line weight and proposed application. These designs provide the most efficient transfer of casting energy over a wide range of distances. As the loop unrolls, heavier line is constantly turning over lighter line.

This Triangle Taper also gives you more delicate presentations, because most of the weight in the line is away from the fly. TT Lines deliver high velocity roll and shoot casts with power and precision. The combination of a long weighted section and a light running line make the TT line cast like a shooting head for distance.  High floating, slick and durable finish.

Fly Line Taper Profiles

Matching a Triangle Taper
 Triangle Tapers now have a single weight rating. To properly match a Triangle Taper line to a rod, match the line rating on the rod. However, a TT5 balances a 5-weight rod of average design. It will also balance with a soft 6-weight rod.

Customizing a Triangle Taper

Tapering of the fly line is the key to gentle presentation. It's the reason we don't use level lines for trout fishing. The front end of the Triangle Taper can be customized by the individual angler. This is accomplished by cutting off some of the taper. If you never fish with 6X tippet and size 20 - 24 flies, but instead use larger wind resistant dry flies, weighted nymphs or streamers, you might cut off 12" or so of the fly line and still have delicacy of presentation.

The heavier line weights have larger diameter line at the beginning of the taper but, here again, if you are a bass fisherman or salt water angler and find that cutting back the taper improves the turnover of your flies, you can do it and still have a taper.

Always go slowly with this process, cutting a foot to begin with, then trying the leader and fly combination to see the effect. If it is still not perfect, cut only inches at a time from then on.
