TIGER TAIL.......THE SECRET'S OUT!

NYLON-COATED STAINLESS STEEL TRACE WIRE IN BLACK ON 9 METRE SPOOLS.

Long before Authanic wire came along and changed the world, this product was our trace-wire of choice in whatever colour we could get, usually gold or some weird shade of green or silver......how embarrasing!

Originally sold as "jewellery wire" in the craft market, I discovered it one fine day in a Haberdasher's shop, tried it out and used it exclusively for several seasons prior to getting hold of Authanic wire.......me and my friends kept it a secret for years.........

After searching for many years I have now discovered a supplier of what I wanted all along.......Tiger Tail in lovely black! Oh, Heaven!

Like all nylon-coated wires it suffers from the same sorts of problems; let's be honest with ourselves here and say that every wire we've ever used has some sort of problem associated with it, usually coiling after catching a fish on it, and that can work out to be an expensive day out if you're getting plenty of action!

Tiger Tail is no different, but it does possess a really tough nylon coating that helps to prevent this problem for as long as possible and for much longer than some other "famous wires".

If only this stuff had been around when I used to bait-fish for pike! 

Easy to use with a very fine diameter and knots couldn't be simpler to make.....twice through the eye and clamp your forceps on the tag-end, then spin 'em around until there's a nice whip-finish. 

Much better to use for buoyant flies on deep-sunk lines than soft wires, with the added benefit of less tangling.

A really good standard wire to have in your tackle bag and dead cheap, makes replacing traces almost a joy!

Breaking strain is plenty strong enough for our game at around 25 lbs, despite the fine diameter. Don't leave home without it!
