The leader is a tapered nylon line which is visually transparent. It’s attached between the fly line and the tippet, and it allows a line to be cast more efficiently into the water. You can find leaders in a handful of lengths, though they can usually be found around eight or nine feet, and the weight of the line should correspond with the size of the fly. Being a tapered line, the leader helps the line both cast better and land more softly in the water. If you are on the search for new or used leaders, you’ve come to the right place.
