Leaders & Tippets

Can you use a regular fishing line for a fly leader?

Regular fly fishing line can certainly be used for a fly leader, but the preference is to use tapered leaders. As the leader is used as a barrier between your fly line and fly, there is no real difference between fly fishing line and regular fishing line other than the taper.

How to tie on a fly fishing leader?

In order to tie on a fly fishing leader, you need to make a loop and pass it through an eyelet. Form an overhand knot on the eyelet. Then extend the loop and pass the lure/hook through it. Lastly, close the knot by pulling the tag and lure/hook in opposite directions. Moisten the line and knot then pull very tight. Trim the tag whenever it is complete.

What are fishing leaders used for?

Fishing leaders attach to a heavier fly line and allow the fly to be cast at a distance without scaring the fish by 'slapping' onto the water, and without it being seen. As it is generally almost as thick as a regular line at the top but bigger down the bottom, it also allows for greater presentation to the water.
