    There is absolutely nothing in fly fishing quite like seeing a tarpon inhale your fly, leap toward the heavens, and race like a madman for the horizon. In order to make that happen, you’ll need help: the Mastery Tarpon taper. Designed with a short head for quick shots, this is the perfect line for casting flies to tarpon of all shapes, sizes, and temperaments. Just remember to bow to the king when it jumps.

    Applications:

    • The ultimate shallow-water low-visibility tarpon line
    • Smooth-handling, tangle-free design for quick casts with outstanding delivery and delicacy
    • Stiffer core improves shootability and distance
    • Also excels for other large shallow-water species

    Taper Characteristics:

    • Shorter head for quick casts to cruising tarpon and also minimizes false casting with large flies
    • Ideal head and taper length for the optimal casting balance between distance, accuracy, and speed
    • Advanced taper improves line performance in the wind without compromising delivery
    • Larger diameter running line reduces memory and tangles
    • Compound taper head provides easy turnover under the most demanding saltwater conditions
    • Horizon color, although visible to anglers, blends into the sky and sea to become less visible to skittish fish

    Core:

    • Stiffer braided monofilament nylon, built with 3M Tropi-Core technology, for reduced tangling, better shooting, and superior overall performance in warmer saltwater environments

    Coating:

    • Special higher-density 3M saltwater PVC formulated with patented AST - Advanced Shooting Technology

    Color: Horizon

    Delivery: Moderate

    Stiffness: High

    Mastery lines incorporate Scientific Anglers' Advanced Shooting Technology. The unique 'dry-slick' coating enhances every aspect of floating line performance. In just three short years, amazing AST - Advanced Shooting Technology - has redefined fly-line performance. Using a patented coating process, AST is integrated within the line coating to achieve a unique 'dry' slickness that keeps the line permanently slick and continuously clean. Try an AST line just once, and nothing else will do.  The dry slickness of AST prevents dirt and algae from clinging to line, which means line stays cleaner and floats higher for longer intervals. AST isn't just permanently slick - it's lightning slick for the fastest, smoothest shooting of your life. With AST, line shoots through the guides virtually friction-free and keeps on doing it for the life of the line - without the need for dressing. Plus, because the line stays so clean and free of debris with AST, Scientific Anglers lines are significantly less prone to wear and corrosion.
