Airflo Cold Saltwater Floating & Intermediate Fly Lines
There's a difference between cold and really cold, especially when your fly line starts misbehaving. The original environment where fly fisher's started to appreciate the benefits of polyurethane coating - an unrelenting toughness and unbelievable suppleness in the coldest conditions made the Airflo Cold Saltwater fly line a firm favourite with kiwi snapper, kahawai and king chasers.
Improved by the inclusion of Power Cores, memory is reduced to zero and the uncanny ability to set hooks at long range helps you catch even more fish. Floating and intermediate lines are looped.

For nearly 70 years, the majority of fly lines have been made from PVC – a naturally rigid plastic that requires the use of plasticisers to make PVC lines functional. These plasticisers are anything but a permanent part of a PVC line. You see, from the minute it’s made, a PVC line begins breaking down - leaching plasticisers into the environment and contaminating you and the waters you fish. Once it has shed enough of these, it becomes prone to cracking, even failure. If that’s not enough, as it decomposes, PVC is known to release Dioxins - a group of lethal, bioaccumulating toxins. Consequently, it’s virtually impossible to safely recycle a PVC line. All of which is why Airflo never uses PVC. Instead, our lines are made from Polyurethane - an inert, stable, fully recyclable material that requires no plasticisers and lasts far longer than PVC.
