The Orvis Mirage fluorocarbon tippet is one of the best fluorocarbon tippets available. This tippet is great for fishing nymphs or steamers as it’s highly abrasion-resistant and sinks well. The built-in cutter on the spool is a really cool spool design feature and makes cutting off a piece of tippet very simple. The control band on the tippet spool, which is made to hold the tippet in place on the spool, can eventually stretch, allowing the tippet to unravel slowly off the spool. All in all, this is a superb fluorocarbon tippet material.

Ideal for
  • Highly Abrasion Resistant
  • High breaking strength
  • Great spool design
Not ideal for
  • Control band on spool will stretch

Orvis Mirage Tippet is the ideal tippet for nymph fishing or throwing large streamers. The turnover power makes it easy to cast, while the material itself is abrasion resistant. This tippet is for the angler who needs tippet for subsurface applications.

Key Features:

  • Refraction Similar To Water – Subdued elements make the tippet almost invisible to the fish.
  • Extrusion Taper Technology– Casting is easier and allows the tippet to help turn over flies.
  • Pure Flourocarbon – Ideal construction to add durability and abrasion resistance of the tippet.

Orvis mirage tippet is a must have for fishing dry droppers or nymphing. This tippet is completely invisible in the water to make that nymph presentation seamless. The added durability of this material helps prevent break offs underwater on rocks and other snags when you are fighting that trophy fish. The added stealth of this tippet... Read more

Joseph Smith owns this product
Fly fishing anglers who like to fish nymphs, wet flies, and streamers should consider using Orvis Mirage Tippet. This tippet is made from fluorocarbon material for increased stealth, strength, and ability to sink. The spool contains a built in line cutter to assist with quicker tippet changes while fishing streamside.
Ideal for
  • This is fluorocarbon tippet material.
  • This tippet material is hard for fish to see.
  • This tippet material sinks in the water helping flies get deep quickly.
Not ideal for
  • This material will sink and is not ideal for dry fly fishing.

Helped me with some valuable fly fishing knowledge that I lack coming from the conventional fishing world. Hooked me up with a good starter rod and even price matched it with another company. Will be coming back for a reel soon.
