Product Description

Tuf-Line Premium Braided Dacron is perfect for making the fly lines developed by John Betts. The 30#, 40# and 50# sizes are used to make 1 to 7 weight lines based on the recipes in Fly Lines - how to make them by John Betts and Michael Hackney.

Each spool contains 150 yards of braid, enough to make 2-4 lines depending on which line recipe you use. There are 2 sets of line recipes in the book, John's original recipes for 3 to 6 weight lines and Michael's single-sheath recipes for 1 to 7 weight lines.

John's original recipes require:

  • 3 wt line: 90' of 40# dacron braid
  • 4 wt line: 90' of 40# and 40' of 30# dacron braid
  • 5 wt line: 90' of 40# and 40' of 40# dacron braid
  • 6 wt line: 90' of 50# and 40' of 40# dacron braid

The recipes above also require about 225 yards of 4# monofilament (most any 4# mono will work fine) for the line's core.

Michael's single sheath recipes use either 30# or 50# braid along with a core of 4#, 6# or 8# monofilament. The light 1 and 2 weight lines are typically made 50' long but you can adjust any of these lines' lengths to meet your needs.

We also offer Fly Line Materials Kits that include the braid and monofilament for 3, 4, 5 and 6 wt lines.
