A perfect leader for demanding fish and conditions

This leader has an orange tip to help you to spot those delicate takes

This leader is made of 8/0 uni-thread.   If you are after trout or grayling in small rivers and are using a 2.5 metre Tenkara rod or perhaps #2 - 3 rod, then this would be an ideal leader to use. Just add 4 or 5 feet of tippet material and a light coating of floatant you are set to go.

Advantages of using furled leaders:

1         Better power transfer from the fly line to fly at the end of the cast, which results in better turnover of the fly.

2         Improves fly casting and reduces tangles.

3         More delicate fly presentation.
