Specialized Nylon Leaders
Over the years, we have received many questions regarding leader length, especially for skating/hitching and dry fly fishing for salmon, as well as the perfect nylon leader length for a coastal leader for sea trout fishing in Scandinavia. Since so many have been asking, and with the knowledge of how crucial the leader design is for that kind of fly fishing, we decided to develop nylon leaders “with a primary purpose” to cover this.
They are developed with the focus being on presentation, precision, and strength, as well as maintaining the correct mass in a leader to control the upper line in the loop on the forward cast.
We have three Specialized nylon leaders:
Dry Fly Salmon leader for line wt. 18 grams. Butt 0.59 – tip 0.31 L 4.0 m/13 feet. Breaking strength 16 lbs
Hitch & Skating leader for line wt. 16 to 18 grams. Butt 0.57 – tip 0.29 L 3.3 m/10.8 feet. Breaking strength 15 lbs
Scandic Coastal leader for line wt. 12 to 16 grams. Butt 0.57 – tip 0.27 L 3.5 m/11.5 feet. Breaking strength 12.5 lbs
