THE Wire Leader™
American Fishing Wire enters this season with a new logo, a new production/shipping facility, and a completely new image. Our
growth over the past 25 years has enabled us to provide you with the finest fishing wire and rigging products on the market. Some
things haven’t changed, though - we still manufacture all of our own wire, strand, and cable here in the United States. Our modern
facilities now employ more than 90 people while we continue to combine sophisticated technology with hand craftsmanship.
Our quality of fishing wire far exceeds our competition, and is proven to withstand the powerful, unsympathetic bite of toothy fish,
such as Barracuda, Bluefish, King Mackerel, Pike, Shark, and Wahoo. Whether you’re in a stream or on a boat, our range of wires
are tailored to suit your specific needs - from the stealthy 6 lb. test of knottable Surflon Micro Ultra to the whopping 900 lb. test
of the mighty 49 Strand cable.
American Fishing Wire is the official wire sponsor of the Southern Kingfish Association and the American Striper Association, and
we proudly sponsor several pro-angling teams and tournaments across the country. Our involvement allows us to stay in touch with
angler, promote camaraderie and sportsmanship, and learn valuable new fishing techniques. The pro’s count on AFW because our
wires allow them to hook-up and haul-in under the most demanding fishing conditions.
When it comes to breadth of selection
and consistent quality, AFW leads the way. Take us with you on every fishing trip, and
you’ll see why American Fishing Wire
continues to be THE Wire Leader.

SURFLON® MICRO SUPREME
PROFESSIONAL GRADE
NYLON COATED 7 X 7 STAINLESS STEEL LEADER WIRE
Perhaps the best leader wire available! Surflon Micro Supreme is
miniature 49 strand stainless steel wire that is extremely flexible and
kink resistant. This wire is ideal for many types of sport fishing because it can
be knotted to your bait and line like monofilament, it provides greater flexibility
and less stretch than monofilament, and is generally smaller diameter per pound
test, and therefore, less visible in the water. Surflon Micro Supreme is extra limp
and has virtually no memory or stretch. The wire enhances the action of live
and artificial baits and adds a level of realism never before attainable using wire
or other leader materials such as monofilament and fluorocarbon. This wire
is ideal for presenting life-like bait at any depth and can fool tackle-shy Billfish
while withstanding the violent razor-sharp strikes of King Mackerel and Shark.
Excellent for casting flies and tempting the most discriminating toothy fish to the
surface. No other wire offers more realistic action both above and below the
water. Low elasticity and high sensitivity allow you to set hooks faster and with
more accuracy. Attach using common monofilament knots such as the Albright
Knot, Clinch Knot, Nail Knot, Perfection Loop, Surgeon’s Loop, or Uni-Knot.

THE ORIGINAL KNOTTABLE LEADER WIRE SINCE 1995!
- While you do not need wire leader to catch prized
species such as Billfish, Sailfish, Tarpon, or Striped Bass, many anglers use wire to prevent bite-offs from nontargeted toothy fish that often hit their bait. Single strand wire and other brands of multi-strand wire are stiff
and can spook tackle-shy fish such as Billfish and Tarpon. AFW’s miniature nylon coated 7x7 and 1x19 stainless
steel wires behave more like monofilament and provide an increased level of natural bait action along with a more
realistic presentation. These wires can be knotted to your bait & line like mono, combine higher breaking strengths
in smaller diameters, and deliver reduced visibility and maximum bite protection. Diameter for diameter, absolutely
no other multi-strand fishing wires offer more flexibility and strength!

SURFLON® MICRO ULTRA
COMPETITION GRADE
NYLON COATED 1X19 STAINLESS STEEL LEADER WIRE
Surflon Micro Ultra 19 strand is more flexible than our Surflon 1x7
(page 8), but not as flexible as our Surflon Micro Supreme 7x7 (page
6). Surflon Micro Ultra has a smooth nylon coating that adds kink resistance,
provides longer life, and makes the wire easy to knot. You can attach this leader
wire using common monofilament knots such as the Albright Knot, Clinch Knot,
Nail Knot, Perfection Loop, Surgeon’s Loop, Uni-Knot, etc... Low stretch and
high sensitivity allow for fast hook sets and remarkable performance. The
limp, supple qualities make it especially well-suited for fly fishing tippet and
predator leaders where life-like bait presentation is required along with strong
bite protection. Surflon Micro Ultra is an economical alternative to Surflon
Micro Supreme and an excellent leader wire for Barracuda, Billfish, Bluefish, King
Mackerel, Shark, Wahoo, and other game fish.

STANDARD GRADE
NYLON COATED 1X 7 STAINLESS STEEL LEADER WIRE
Surflon 1x7 is a great all-around leader wire for toothy fish. This wire
is our Surfstrand 1x7 stainless steel with a smooth coating of nylon. A
specially selected grade of nylon, tough yet flexible, is used to seal out water,
reduce visibility, and improve the life of the line. Compared to our competitor’s
old style 1x3 construction, Surflon’s 1x7 construction offers higher break
strength and more realistic action. Surflon 1x7 is an effective leader wire for
hard-charging, toothy fish such as Bluefish and Mackerel.

BLEEDING LEADER™ WIRE
Bleeding Leader Wire is the World’s First Blood Red nylon coated leader
wire. The unique red nylon coating mimics actual blood in top water fishing
conditions to attract fish. In deeper water, the color Red is filtered out faster
than other colors on the spectrum and ‘vanishes’ to fish. Bleeding Leader
Wire is ideal for all types of toothy fish and is made from our strong 1X7
stainless steel leader wire.

SURFSTRAND®
STANDARD GRADE
BARE 1X 7 STAINLESS STEEL LEADER WIRE
Surfstrand 1x7 is made of corrosion resistant, spring temper stainless
steel. Compared to our competitor’s old style 1x3 construction,
Surfstrand’s 1x7 construction offers higher break strength and more realistic
action. The wire is specially stranded to deliver superior kink resistance, and
the high strength of stainless makes this an excellent wire for leaders, lures,
and trolling. Camouflaged Brown finish minimizes reflections and disappears
beneath the water. Attach Surfstrand using crimping sleeves and
crimping pliers or tie with a Figure 8 Knot (pg. 22).

STAINLESS STEEL TROLLING WIRE
AFW’s Stainless Steel Trolling Wire is soft single strand wire carefully
annealed for maximum flexibility and strength. The line sinks rapidly
allowing the angler to get down deep using shorter lengths of line. It is kink
and abrasion resistant and ideal for both fresh and saltwater trolling. The high
strength of stainless steel results in a small diameter per pound test providing
greater reel capacity. Great for reaching Stripers and other fish in deep waters.

MONEL TROLLING WIRE
AFW’s single strand soft Monel Trolling Wire is the ultimate line for
wire fishing. Special processing by AFW gives the wire exceptional kink
resistance with excellent ductility and high strength. This nickel-copper alloy
provides maximum corrosion resistance in fresh and saltwater and, due to its
greater density, sinks more rapidly and stays deeper than stainless steel and
other trolling lines. Excellent wire for dragging baits at depth and hooking hardcharging game fish such as Striped Bass and Wahoo.

49 STRAND™
BARE 7 X 7 STAINLESS STEEL CABLE
Made from high strength, corrosion resistant Type 304 stainless steel,
49-Strand 7x7 cable provides excellent protection against Shark and
other big game toothy fish. This cable provides excellent kink resistance and
bite protection. Oftentimes when a Shark strikes a bait, they twirl violently. This
motion can kink single strand leader wire and can actually be more destructive
to your tackle than the fierce bite. 49-Strand resists kinking, wrestles back, and
allows you to hook up and haul in. Available in Bright and Camouflaged Brown.
