This Leader was developed after a weeklong trip fishing a 3 wt rod on a small brush covered creek. We realized that having a shorter leader for the 3 or 4 wt rods would be very beneficial. These short Rod Dry Fly Leaders offer the same dry fly fishing qualities of our longer leaders, but in a shorter version. These leaders have become a favorite among our many Bamboo enthusiasts. If you fish bamboo or a rod beneath 7′-6″ in length, you should give one of these leaders a try. The “Shorty” as we call it, comes in camo color.
We also have a large following of Western Fly fishers that chase the Caddis hatch. During this hatch, frequent short cast’s to rising trout is the name of the game. Some of the more famous Montana shop guides call this leader the Caddis smasher.
