Who We Are
406 Fly Lines is a small family owned business started to give the older fiberglass and slow action rod user and the new glass rod owner an opportunity to use the fly lines originally designed "back in the day" for their classic rods. The tapers are based on some of the most popular vintage tapers tweaked with modern materials.
Ever try to find a double taper lines these days? One of the largest manufacturers today has over 52 different tapers in their 2013 catalog and exactly one double taper in limited sizes. 406 lines will be available in sizes up to 8 weight in both double taper and weight forward to accommodate your rods. All 406 fly lines are true to weight. That is a 5 weight is 140 grains, not a half size heavier as are so many fly lines these days.
At the risk of sounding trendy living in one of the most beautiful places on the planet is a privilege we don't take lightly. All product packaging is manufactured with 100% recyclable materials. The fly lines are manufactured in the USA in a state of the art environmentally friendly facility. When you receive your fly line you may notice we don't use the fanciest packing. The packing material is what is used to package the fly lines from the factory. That material is recycled and we reuse it another time. With that simple gesture we are trying to do our part to reduce the trash stream headed to the landfill.
While we love hearing from our customers you may notice that there's no testimonial page or pro staff. One of the core beliefs around the shop is that the only opinion that matters is yours, period. Ideally you should try our lines for yourself or listen to a trusted friend rather than some anonymous reviewer. Please feel free to contact us at 406-223-2538 anytime - we enjoy talking to our customers and usually learn as much from you as you learn from us.
We are committed to providing the finest fly lines available today at a reasonable cost. We don't have an advertising department that spends a ton of money trying to convince you to buy from us by claiming to be the next big thing. Lexi and I believe that word of mouth is the best advertising.
