Flytriever is a device that assists in retrieval of fly’s caught in trees and helps prevent leaving tippet in undesirable places.
The original Flytriever was CNC machined from Dupont™ Delrin® and had a mass of only 12 grams, (20 grams including cord) the MK11 version is 3D printed on a Markforged 3D Industrial printer using a high strength composite base material called Onyx, (a micro carbon fibre filled nylon) reinforced with continuous fibreglass filament. This has allowed the weight to be reduced to 8 grams! (16 grams including cord) 3D printing has allowed the prong that fits into the tip ring to be tapered to a more delicate point, allowing it to fit snugly in even smaller tip rings.
When not in use, the cord is securely wrapped around the prongs, which ensures that it is tangle free and ready for use when required.
