Umpqua Perform X Fly Fishing Tippet Video Review


Umpqua's Hydrophobic coating keeps the nylon from absorbing water throughout the day which historically results in weaker knots and overall tinsel strength. Their third layer is a continuous coating which creates smooth, consistent, and reliable material. All of Umpqua's X rated tippet includes a custom Umpqua ProBand to keep tippet at the ready, right where you left it.
