Teufelberger Fly

Recommended Posts

Hey People,


Does anyone know if the Red Teufelberger Fly rope can be spliced?


Not sure of the construction of it, but it’s different to any line I’ve used before.

Let us know how you get on.


i took my fly into the local chandlers years ago, needed the whipping redoing.  I explained to the guy in the shop it was a unique splice that his guys probably wouldn’t be familiar with, which he scoffed at boasting his guys know every splice.  5 minutes later there were 3 of them gathered round poking and prodding at this new splice they’d never come across before 😁

look up the New England "heavy duty kernmantle splice"directions. its an easy splice as long as you keep the strands parallel. if they cross over, its gets hard very quickly.
