From the pages of Airflo comes this exciting news regarding the design team. Bruce Chard earned his chops by fishing some of the toughest water on the planet and used those valuable lessons learned in designing some of the best tropical lines out there.

There’s nobody quite like Bruce Chard. If you’ve had the pleasure of spending time with this dude, I bet you’d agree. He’s passionate about what he does, and truly loves this sport.
We’re [Airflo] extremely fortunate to have Bruce’s experience to draw from. 23 years of full-time bonefish, permit, and tarpon guiding will teach you a lil’ something about saltwater fly fishing, and certainly a thing (or two) about the gear you need to make the day productive. Clear water, searing sun, and walloping wind makes enticing these tropical titans “challenging” to say the least. When it comes to flats fishing, tossing the right line can make all the difference.
“Tropical wind is no joke. We deal with it daily fishing the flats. Often, clients struggle to lay out long leaders and big flies casting into the wind. Our goal was to develop the new industry standard “go-to” saltwater line to help anglers overcome this obstacle, and be more effective on the water. Airflo’s Super-Dri technology coupled with a proven, award winning taper makes this the best saltwater fly line ever made. I’m so excited about these new lines. Having the opportunity to work with Airflo and Rajeff Sports is a dream come true”.
Look for the release of Chard’s new “Tropical Punch” line in early 2015.
