A specially designed co-polymer 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)

High quality copolymer leader
Friday, 6 July 2018  | 

Very happy with these leaders that are now my go to leader for summer carp fishing. They have comfortably handled a good number of double figure carp including three over 20lbs, one of which was 28lbs 7oz. I have every confidence in their knot strength.
