“The decision for me to move to Airfl o was a simple one. My fishing is not casual. It’s 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’s what Airfl o delivers. The performance and durability of these lines is superior to any other manufacturer in the industry. That’s what I demand from the products I fish; especially the products I put my name on. When you use one of these lines you’ll know it will perform the way I intended, and rigorously tested by a people who fish… not by a guy in a lab coat”. – KG
