Hitch & Skating nylon leader
In order for a hitch or a skating fly to be deceiving, it has to have a completely free play on the surface following the current’s structure. Here the length, tapering and diameter are very important.
To keep it on the surface, ensuring it does not drown, and that it is easy to cast, here both length and tapering on the leader are crucial. Since this form of fly fishing - hitching and skating - is used for both large salmon and sea trout, it is important that the breaking strength of the leader is strong enough for fighting those species. I/we strongly believe this hitch & skating leader meets the above mentioned demands to perfection.
For line wt. 16 g/247 gr to 18 g/278 gr
If using small hitch/skating flies (i.e. single hooks sizes 8 – 10 and micro tubes), then add 0.30 meters of 0.28mm tippet material, to reach a total maximum length of 3.6 meters.
If using larger flies (i.e. single hooks sizes 8 or medium size plastic tubes), then use the leader as it is so that the total maximum length is 3.3 meters.
