If you made a Venn diagram of the art of fly fishing and science, the overlapping section would be Scientific Anglers. Making products designed for the delicate nature of fly fishing while still boasting durability and long lifespan, SA builds fly fishing gear that you can count on when you’ve hooked the fish of a lifetime.
When Leon P. Martuch, Clare Harris, and Paul Rottiers started the company in 1945, they wanted to focus on the linchpin of fly fishing, the line. Upgrading from silk-based lines to the modernized plastic-coated line was their first order of business, and since then the company has become world-renowned for their fly line technology.
Today, Scientific Anglers makes not only fly fishing line but also tippet, leader, and backing, so you can worry less about your line, and get back to angling.
