Typical Fly Usage For Leader Sizes

To calculate leader size a time used formula is to divide the fly size by 3, this gives you and approximate tipper size. For example for a size 16 fly 16/3 = 5.33 so recommended leader diameter should be 5x to 6x (as can be seen from the chart below)

Excellent delivery times and items very well packaged. Not yet used the leaders so cannot yet comment on their quality.

Sensible mid range tough tapered leaders. They are ideal for the rocky upland streams I fish in the Pyrenees, they tend to withstand the constant contact with rocks quite well.
