Cabela's Fly Fishing University: Leaders, Tippets and Backing

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.
