Tritanium by Sufix
The future of fishing lines seems to change daily with new types of co-polymers, tri-polymers and whatever other types of material that comes of age. You might have read about some of these remarkable achievements in recent sportfishing magazine's tests. Suffix, a division of Mitsubishi leads the way in this technology with a new generation of super bonded molecule Co-Polymer lines, named Tritanium in which the abrasion resistance testing is almost 10 times greater than that of standard fishing lines. 10 times!! That's a lot. Sufix's Tritanium is made extra tough for extra tough conditions (bills, gills, tails, rocks, reefs, coral heads, trees, asphalt, bricks, anything!) it fishes a little more wiry yet it's still very easy to handle and it's small diameter for its test. For the lighter spinning tackle or baitcaster type reels MagicTouch was created with it's soft, low memory casting abilities. It too features co-polymer super bonded molecules for super tough strength.

"It must be in the blood", this sport of fishing. A tackle collector friend of mine informed me of an item he found listed in "FISHING TACKLE, A COLLECTOR'S GUIDE" by Graham Turner. It seems early in sportfishing's ancestry, the year 1756 a European fish tackle merchant Mr. John Doughty of the FISH & FLY posted an anglers companion or (trade card ) which helped with the choice of baits & tackle and where and how to use them. Encouraging his trade with a return address in an advertisement issued in the York Courant, United Kingdom. The "FISH & FLY" listing all manner of tackle and promised "Any gentleman on sending his orders by carrier or News-Man, will have the same carefully observed, and as well used, as if he presented himself", it may have been the first fishing tackle mail order business!! JD's Tackle was born, The FISH & FLY was continued by his son Joseph and in checking with my own family ancestry I also have relatives from that area. "It must be in the blood", and after all these years we still appreciate your patronage.
