Fly Fishing Leaders and Tippet - Take Me Fishing
Of the four major types of leaders on the market, the is by far the most common, with Fluorocarbon claiming second followed by braided and then furled. Today’s pre-drawn mono leaders are leaps and bounds ahead of previous mono leaders. They are strong, well designed with quality tapers, and are even starting to specialize. You will find leaders meant just for nymph fishing, leaders for dry fly fishing and everything in between.
There are fisher folks that use a simple saltwater leader for fly fishing. If they are comfortable with 20lb test, they put eight or ten feet of 20lb test onto the fly line with a small loop knot (a perfection loop knot for both loops) and tie that to their fly. It works okay when you are fishing for very hungry and cooperative fish, for instance, Mackerel, Jack, or Lady fish in open water. But try catching Snook or Steelhead in clear waters with one leader and you will fall short. That’s where tapers come into play to present and work the fly effectively.
