1 leader per pack. 9' 1 colour, 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. The full 9' section is transparent. 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

      hybrid tippet

      the spool holding the tipper is not the usual hard plastic but is soft and not suitable for purpose, i will have to respool.

      Ingenious idea

      I received my order super fast for the hybrid tippet. The spool design is fabulous, no sharp plastic or bits that can be broken. I had fish up to 10lb while using this and it kept its knot strength. The diameter is great and very hard to see in the water.

      Supple Taper leader & tippet

      Like any new version of tapered leaders, you are hesitant to think improvements can be achieved. The turn over and presentation is good, without memory in the leader.
      The tippet dispenser is a new design which allows you to take off just the amount you require, without loosing the cut end of tippet on the spool, but traps between a soft outer casing cover. No messing around to find find cut end that might have slipped under the elastic band on conventional tippet spools, simple but effective idea. The tippet itself complements the tapered leader.

      Straight 'n' Soft Leaders from Sunray

      Just as the name say's, they cast straight and feel soft. You may not catch more fish but you won't be able to blame your leader.
