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 tippet size.
For example for a size 16 fly 16/3 = 5.33 so recommended leader diameter should be 5x to 6x

Used these in Alaska for Sockeye, Pinks, Coho and Chum. They turn over a big heavy fly beautifully and did not let me down once. A great product and well priced.
