Aftco Trolling/Fishing Kite Kits
Kite Kit 1 - Kite and Medium Spars only
Kite Kit 2 - Kite with light and medium spars
Fast becoming the choice of serious kite fishermen everywhere, the AFTCO state-of-the-art Fishing Kites top all others in
performance and durability. 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 — light weight 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. Though most commonly
used to fish live baits for sailfish, dolphinfish 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.
EASY TO ASSEMBLE
Upon removal of the kite from its storage tube, unroll it and insert the spars
into the Dacron pockets sewn to each corner of the kite. Be sure that each
spar first passes through the center Dacron loop (with clip attached) before
inserting one end of the spar into one of the pockets on the back of the kite.
This same corner pocket can then be pushed down on the deck and the spar
can be flexed and inserted into the pocket at the opposite corner of the kite.
The spars should fit across the kite snugly, but should not be bowed or bent
in the middle once they are assembled. With both spars in place, the kite’s
bridle can be adjusted, after which the bridle’s swivel should be attached to
a clip on the kite fly-line, and the kite is in position to be flown.
