    A Really Nice Leader

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This Powerflex Plus leader is easily becoming my favorite all around leader. It works great for pretty much any type of fly fishing because of how durable, clear, and strong it is. Even though it is a blend of both nylon and copolymer (for extra strength) it still offers quite a soft touch when throwing flies and ensuring you have a delicate presentation. Overall, definitely enjoy the extra strength and durability that it offers over mostly all other leaders, while still being a great all around go to leader for whatever style of fly fishing you are looking to tackle.

    Leading Leader

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This leader is great. It holds up well and is super strong. Comes in a lot of weights so you can typically find the perfect one for the occasion. It's all I use now.

    Standard nylon leader.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I prefer these to other nylon leaders mainly due to the fact that they're perfectly clear and don't have a green tint to them. I feel the lack of tint makes them better for tail waters, which we have a lot of here in Utah. They're not as strong as Fluoro, but they get the job done. Plus, they pair well with Rio tippet.
