We looked at the design of droppered leaders which had not changed for years, monofilament was used with droppers tied at intervals. Experiments with turnover showed that with this traditional method of creaing a leader for a team of flies was not as good as that of a good tapered leader used for modern day dry fly fishing. That is when the idea occurred to us. We would creat our droppered leaders for teams of flies based on a modern design of tapered leader! Simple but innovative.

A specially designed tapered leader with a long and heavy butt for turnover power and a supple front taper for delicate presentation. These leaders are an excellent choice for fishing with small and mid-sized flies on spooky fish and ideal for even underhand casting.

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)
