1 leader per pack. 9' 2 tone, anti coil, anti shine leaders designed to deliver your fly perfectly straight.

Typically, tapered leaders are extruded using the factories existing tapers. This creates a leader that has an absurdly thick butt section with very little taper. Then, it drops like a stone to a very wispy, thin tip section. The result is an unbalanced tapered leader. They tend to coil badly and lay like a spring. Also, most tapered leaders are very shiny, transmitting light along their length like fluorescent tubes.

We redesigned the machines that extrude our leaders. It meant our tolerances were much tighter. Then we designed a taper using the same triangle taper principles we use in our fly lines. We fixed the imbalance of thick butt section and thin tippet. This creates the perfect turnover. Then we added a microsphere silica to the surface which created a super soft, dull surface. Finally, we made the 5' butt section a very delicate subtle grey colour to stop light reflecting off the thickest part. The last 4' tip section is left transparent creating the very best situation for attaching either your fly or tippet to the end.

Finally, a truly thought out tapered leader for fly fishing.

  • Extra limp, dull colour, dead straight leaders
  • No more coily, spring like, shiny thick fish scaring leaders!
  • Use nail knots for attaching to non looped fly lines
  • Use water knots to attach tippet

What it's for

  • Using alone or combined with Hybrid tippet
  • Dries and nymphs
  • Presenting the fly straight
  • Preventing light reflecting off the leader

      Very supple and straight leaders

      I have been using these leaders for fishing small dries on 3lb tippet this season and can honestly say they are the best I have ever used.
      Memory free- they lie flat on the water and I never need to stretch or straighten them even after storage on the Reel.
      In the water they seem virtually invisible and turn over flies for very delicate presentation.
      I would definitely recommend them.

      Straight & Soft Leaders

      Just as described, these are lovely & flexible (to reduce drag), virtually no memory (so none of those nasty coils that are difficult to remove other than by boiling & stretching) & a nice matt finish so no shine to potentially spook the fish. Not cheap but an excellent product for those who want the best. If only they were available in 12’ they would be perfect.

      The first leaders I've ever used that are actually thin, straight and don't shine

      I would like to say your leaders do everything that it said on the tin. The joy of arriving at the water and not having to try and straighten the leader.
