Fly fishing technique is a constant battle between the old school art and new school science ? but with Scientific Anglers, you can have both. For more than 60 year, the Michigan-based company has brought a technical eye to the sport and allowed people to imagine new possibilities. Scientific Anglers was the first to develop plastic-coated tapered fly line and modernized both floating and sinking lines. Their patented Advanced Shoot Technology offers unmatched slickness and longevity for fly lines, and SA Floating Texture means lines will sit higher and shoot better. In addition to their leading fly lines and shoot tapers, TackleDirect has Scientific Anglers fly line backing, fly boxes, line dressing and other accessories for flying fishing that goes beyond the status quo.
