We’re very pleased to announce two new additions to the Airflo Design Team. With fresh ideas, unique insight, and unparalleled experience, Bruce and Kelly have made an immeasurable impact on the 2015 product lineup.
Kelly’s unique (and productive) method of targeting aggressive, carnivorous trout changed the way many of us fish for these bronze monsters. Over the course of his career Kelly has modified/refined tactics and gear to improve his chances of bringing these burly toads to hand. One thing’s for sure: nothing beats experience. To be successful, you’ve got to have the right gear. Whelp, you’re in luck…
Coming this August: The Kelly Galloup Tactical Series.
“The decision for me to move to Airflo was a simple one. My fishing is not casual, it is an intense hunt for the biggest bad ass predator that swims and I want the very best product and technology in everything I use. Simply put that is what Airflo delivers. The performance and durability I get is unmatched by any other line. I demand that in the products I fish, and more importantly on the products I put my name on. When you use one of these lines you will know it will perform the way I want it to and it has been tested by a people who fish, not by a guy in a lab coat.”
Captain Bruce Chard
There’s nobody quite like Bruce. 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 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”.
