“Reinforced”- 76″ Ultimate Dry Fly Leader
The perfect leader for times you are fishing heavy tippets. This leader can handle 1X through 5X Tippets. We sell many to guides in Alaska chasing BIG Rainbows, Salmon, etc.
This leader is a must for enhancing your dry fly presentations. These Leaders will turn 4-7′ of your favorite tippet and drop your dry with the most gentle of lay-downs. Imagine the drag-free drifts one gets with that much tippet. I currently offer these Thread Furled Leaders” in 0-3 wt. , 4-5-6 wt., and 7-8 wt as these are the most common trout lines. Myself along with other satisfied customers have landed huge fish on the 5-6 leaders using only 7X tippet. The Leaders ability to provide durability, strength and stretch will surprise even the most seasoned angler. We tell fly fishers to start with 4′-0″ of straight line tippet. You can increase this length depending on your casting ability, wind, fly size, etc. Simply put, the most amazing trout dry fly leader money can buy.
We offer these leaders with two different tippet ends. The small micro ring which is 2mm in diameter (so small they float on the end of the leader) or the shorb loop. This is a loop woven into the leader. This option slightly increases the breaking strength of the leader. If you choose the loop option, you must know how to tie a perfection knot or loop in your tippet and connect via the loop to loop method.
To keep these leaders floating all day, you must apply floatant to the a dry leader (before fishing). See our selection of floatants.
