Kalax Flytesting Device

Take your fly tying to a new level

The Kalax float pipe and flytester, manufactured by Kalax Vision Ltd. in Finland, provides new fascinating aspects and experiences for a fly-fisher tying various kinds of sinking flies, salmon-flies and streamers. The Kalax illustrates the swimming of the fly in its true colours in water, and allows to watch the fly from all angles.

  • The Kalax shows you:
  • The fly in its own circumstances
  • How the wings behave underwater
  • The visibility of the wing
  • How different materials affect the position of the hook
  • The translucence of wing and different kinds of dubbing materials
  • How the fly swims and behaves in different water speeds and streams

Fully adjustable water flow speed makes it possible to find the ideal stream level for the fly. The fly swims in a transparent pipe and the surface flow does not disturb the swimming. The Kalax is manufactured environmental friendly of natural wood from Finland, with a few cover parts of plastic.
