If you have a trip to Alaska on the books, make sure that you're ready for the action with the RIO Steelhead/Salmon Leader 3-Pack. The medium-stiff nylon easily turns over heavy flies and provides the tough abrasion resistance big cohos and wild steelheads demand.

- Q & A
Does the job.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
