Scientific Anglers FLUOROCARBON LEADERS - FRESHWATER/SALTWATER TAPERED LEADER

$23.95

While we’re not going to sit here and claim that our Fluorocarbon Leaders are invisible underwater, let’s just say that they’re extremely hard for fish to see. Constructed of a UV-proof material with high abrasion resistance, these leaders are great for wary fish, low-water conditions, and truly excel when nymphing. But did you know they’re also great for dry-fly fishing? Just an added bonus. They feature the highest wet knot strengths in the industry and true-to-spec X sizes. You can fish the other stuff, or you can Fish the Truth.

  • 2 Leaders Per Package
  • Length: 9’
  • Lowest visibility available
  • Optimal abrasion resistance
  • Refractive index simulates that of water, resulting in ultra-low visibility to fish
  • UV rays have no effect on strength of material, even after prolonged exposure to sun
