    When was the last time you changed leaders?

    Switch out that crusty old leader you've been fishing and keep one more ready to go with the Scientific Anglers Freshwater Nylon Tapered Leader 2-Pack. The 7.5-foot leaders are ideal for most freshwater fly fishing situations and cast well in the wind, while the 9-foot leaders are the ultimate freshwater multi-situation leaders. The longer, larger butt sections easily turn over flies while the new and unique composition allows these leaders to lie straighter on the water. Overall, these babies are flexible and strong, and they easily straighten between your fingertips.

    • Nylon tapered leader
    • Two leaders per package
    • Longer butt section
    • Item #SAS001X

    Can’t go wrong with these!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Got the 2 pack in 4x and 5x a great option for dry fly fishing or nymphing. Ties knots really well to tippet, haven't had it rip on me with a fish on so I can definitely say I trust this leader!

    Solid leader

      Stop reusing that old ratty leader that has been broken off so many times you are left trying to tie 6x tippet to a 2x leader. At this price, keep a handful of new leaders in your pack and spend less time tying surgeons knots and more time fishing.

      Solid leaders

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Got the 0x through 6x in these tapered leaders and they work great! They tie solid knots on your tippet. Haven't had any issues, solid leader for the price!

      Great leaders for great price.

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Straightened out easily and nicely right out of the package and do the job they are designed for. Nice to save a little money over some other brands too.

      Great Tapered Leaders

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Unless your a leader snob and need all hand tied, these are a great option. They're nicely tapered down to whatever diameter you need.
      Great combination of price point and quality. They get the job done!
