AFTCO Fishing Kites are fast becoming the choice of serious kite fishermen everywhere, the AFTCO state-of-the-art Fishing Kites top all others in performance and durability. The medium spar (spar is the cross bars on the kite that hold it open. If the spar it too weak, the kite won't fly high enough.) Constructed from waterproof rip-stop nylon sail cloth, low maintenance AFTCO kites won't mildew and will fly - EVEN WHEN WET!
Also unique are AFTCO's interchangeable spars - lightweight and flexible, yet virtually unbreakable - available in two distinct sets that enable AFTCO kites to handle a complete wind range from four on up to 16 miles per hour. And even without wind, the AFTCO kite can be slow trolled - or drift fished by attaching a helium-filled balloon to the kite's special loops. Also featured is an easily adjustable bridle with no metal connectors to rust or break, plus a black with white logo design that is easily visible against any sky while kite fishing.
Though most commonly used to kite fish with live baits for sailfish, dolphin and tuna, fishing kites are also extremely effective for baiting marlin, king mackerel, tarpon, sharks and even freshwater bass. In fact, there are very few predator fish that can resist a live bait struggling (or a dead bait skipping) on the water's surface - and the AFTCO Kite, when used properly, is the best tool for making a tantalizing surface presentation. Weight them to fly left or right and AFTCO kites can be flown and fished in tandem.
