Product Description

The 30' Tapered Knotless Horse Hair Fly Line is no longer available for purchase. We are leaving this informational page available. The Power Fibers article provided in the 19th Century Furling Tool link has complete instructions on making your own tools and furling horse hair lines.

30' Tapered Knotless Horse Hair Fly Line

These lines are hand made using premium horse hair with the 19th Century Furling Tool and process described in our article on line making. After furling, the line is soaked in water overnight and all protruding hair ends are clipped and the line allowed to dry. A loop is formed on each end and secured with silk thread and varnish.

Horse hair fly line has a unique feel and casts nicely. Due to the labor-intensive nature of these lines, they are made as they are ordered. Expect at least a two week delivery time. Email if you have requirements for a shorter or longer line. Given the labor intensive nature of this item, they are made when they are ordered.

  1. Well made line 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Aug 2010

    I have been reproducing horse hair lines and snoods for many years using various twisting methods described in early angling literature, including a "Treatyse Jig," Williamson's goose quill roll/twist, or a Walton's Engine. I was fascinated when I learned that Michael had "rediscovered" a method of making tapered knot-less lines. Such a one-piece line is much easier to use, so after first acquiring from Michael a set of his quills needed for the process, I start making them using the written material Michael furnished. I also acquired one of the horse hair lines he makes for my collection. Now I think I make fine horse hair lines and snoods, but in my opinion Michael is an artist, and I am proud to have one of his knot-less one-piece lines for my collection. Moreover, I will be showing it to my students as an excellent example of a properly constructed one-piece horse hair line in all of my historic angling classes and lectures. I highly recommend that you consider obtaining one of Michael's lines for your collection, or for fishing in a period correct "antique" manner. I also suggest that you consider making one yourself using his quill tools and the fine horse hair he offers his customers.
